Notes: Figurine from La Venta Offering No. 3. This figurine is just over 2 1/2 inches long, and made of very light grey jade, opaque, and mottled with medium grey streaks. The head is elongated which suggests deformation, often seen in Olmec figurines. The worn break marks of the arm suggest that the figurine was broken before it was buried as part of Offering No. 3.
