Remojadas style figurines are characterized by relaxed stances and smiling faces. This particular figurine must have depicted a high-status female, since she wears a feathered headdress ornamented with a bird, huge conic earflares, a stone necklace and what probably was a formal quezquémitl or overblouse.
