The power of dogu: ceramic figures from ancient Japan

"Dogu are from the earliest-dated tradition of pottery manufacture in the world, dating to the prehistoric Jomon period, which began 16,000 years ago. Most of the figures in the exhibition are from about 2500 BC to 1000 BC (the Middle and Late Jomon periods) and show the development of the sculptural form over time."

The exhibition is in Room 91 at the British Museum until 22 November 2009. Admission free.
