One of the oldest in Mesoamerica, the Chupícuaro ceramic tradition includes figurines of diminutive ladies as well as vessels in a great variety of shapes, including unusual forms such as the stirrup-spout. Chupicuaro's influence in the Valley of México is evidenced by large amounts of petite and highly adorned figurines as well as numerous polychrome vessels.
