A seated ball player wears a thick padded tunic that was typically used in Mayan ball games, these players were also adorned with jade and / or turquoise jewelry on their coyar, earmuffs, high armbands and low armbands as seen in the figure.
Faces and fashions from life in the Classic Period of Maya civilization appear in fired clay. Thousands of these figurines, probably portraits, have come from graves on the island of Jaina, Campeche off the Gulf Coast of Yucatán. Many, fashioned with hollow bodies, served as ritual rattles or whistles. Blue paint has weathered less than the other colors that originally brightened the effigies.
