A stone figurine and clay figurine with almost no missing parts.

1 (p. 164):
Many stone figurines have decoration patterns made up of gentle curved lines and gentle body shapes. The structure below the waist is similar to that of the shakoki clay figurine.

2 (p. 165):
No other clay figurine has been completely painted with red color as seen here. Many clay figurines have red colored paint remaining in fragments, but it is unknown whether or not it was painted on to the full figure.
This owl-faced clay figurine whose eyes and mouth are expressed with circles appeared around the end of the Jomon period.
