The ithyphallic figures are often dwarves such as this figure, showing the distinctive compressed facial features. He wears the insigna of rank or shamanic status with the disk leg and armbands, crested turban with long backflap and a shortsleeved tunic with applied pods, possibly cocoa; the oval medallion is prominently placed on the center of the chest. Gallagher (1983:40) notes that Colima small solid figurines depict ritual performers with enormous phalluses, likely in ceremonies with symbolic connections to fertility. See Townsend, ed. 1998:194, fig. 3 for the chest medallion.
