See 1951.2.100 for a similar figurine. Another figurine of this style was excavated at Jonuta in Tabasco near the Usumacinta River (Álvarez, Carlos, and L. Casasola, 1985, Las Figurillas de Jonuta, Tabasco, Editorial Libros de México, México, D.F., lámina 29b). The site is located on a major trade route that lasted from Pre-Classic through Post-Classic times, and ceramics imported from both Central Mexico and the Gulf Coast region are found at the site. However, given that Hartley lived and traveled in Central Mexico, it is likely this figurine was found/acquired in this region.
