This article on Olmec figurine describes a number of archetypical figurines produced by the Formative Period inhabitants of Mesoamerica. These figurines bear the hallmarks and motifs of Olmec culture. The figurines are simple in design, often nude or with a minimum of clothing, and made of local terracotta. A unique marker of Olmec culture is the "baby-face" figurine, easily recognized by the chubby body, the baby-like jowly face, downturned mouth, and the puffy slit-like eyes.
