Jaina of an older bearded man with decorated plume (Penacho) and jade or turquoise jewelry seated on a throne with a container on his back
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.
