The imaged above show pieces of are known as Dogu. These figures are humanoid sculptures that are from the Jomon Period of Japan(10,000BC to 300BC). Being from the same period of time, they are very similar to one another. The features of large eyes and bodies with small limbs is constant on many figures found. The people of the Jomon period were known for their early pottery skills. Taking those skills, the Jomon made the dogu idols. Many of the dogu that have been found and excavated appear to be made out of clay, but others have been found that have been craved out of stone.
