Abstract

In Japan, it is suggested that clay figurines were produced for deliberate fragmentation. However, the distribution of clay figurines was limited to some sites, and the total number of fragmented figurines is relatively small. This article tries to present some new arguments about the function of figurines, based on data from Angyo period, late and latest Jomon. I suggest that the function of figurines needs further discussion.
