A fat puppy with short legs exemplifies the Tlachichi dogs native to pre-Hispanic Mexico. The little creature sleeps peacefully and seems to smile. Artisans from the Angel Ceron Artisan Association depict the pup in a ceramic replica, much like those found in Colima's shaft tombs. Sculpted in clay as funerary offerings, these ancient figurines accompanied their masters in death to aid the soul in crossing rivers of blood along the road of the dead.
