Pregnant woman figurine from pottery

Cultural Heritage/Japan Heritage
This Middle Jomon Period (c. 3,500?2,500 BC) clay figurine (dogu) was excavated from Katsurano site. This clay figurine must have been originally attached to a rim of the pot based on analysis of this fragment and comparisons with similar Middle Jomon pots in this region. This piece was found alone on the floor of a pit dwelling and the floor was covered with large stones.
