Costumed Figure Date: 7th–8th century Jaina, a small island located off the western coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, was raised above the waters when the Maya carried tons of earth onto it. As part of the funerary practice on Jaina, ceramic figurines were included in the burials. The early burials had few figurines of high quality. Later the figures were produced in greater quantity and their aesthetic quality declined. The subject matter is often related to matters of fertility.
