13 Historiographies aside, figurine scholarship consists of excavation reports and interpretive essays. Of these, many propose specific meanings or functions for figurines. In addition to the Mother Goddess interpretations, the common references are to ritual, religion and spiritual life. Most propose anecdotal functions: figurines as dolls, toys, magical items, afterlife accessories, sexual aids, fertility figures, effigies, talismans, ritual figures, concubines, slaves, puberty models, training mechanisms, votive and healing objects, items used in initiation ceremonies, contracts, territory and identity markers (Meskell 1998).
