The Chupícuaro produced polished ceramics decorated mainly with black and cream geometrical designs on a red background. The ceramic forms they made include bowls with conical bases, dishes, and some bottles with stirrup handles. Multicolored human figurines were also made and decorated with the same designs used on their dishes, with barely discernable facial features. The best known Chupícuaro female figurines are the “diagonal eyed” figures, which were occasionally painted in vivid colors but usually left unpainted and finely decorated with appliqués of clay and clay slip. These figures are mostly represented nude and with clearly female anatomy, but some pieces are wearing elaborate headdresses and clothing, and all sport unique hairstyles and body decorations. The figurines date from the last stage of the ancient tradition of female representations that began with the Tlatilco culture. The Chupícuaro also produced ceramic flutes, ocarinas, and earpieces, and used bone and seashell to make a wide variety of ornaments.
