Animated Object of the Day: Aztec Dog Figurine

by Bernard K. Means, Project Director

The Virginia Museum of Natural History (VMNH) focuses their attention on studying animal remains from archaeological sites through their extensive faunal type collection. VMNH does also hold other collections of interest, including this clay figurine of a canine manufactured by the Aztecs.

This figurine is actually quite small, as can be seen in this photograph of the object as it was being scanned.
