Fascination with figurines is as old as humankind. One of the oldest figurines ever found, the Venus of Willendorf, dates back more than 25,000 years. Figurines have been made in nearly any readily available material, including stone, crystal, wood, clay, ceramics, glass, metals of all kinds and porcelain and even modern materials such as rubber, plastic and Fimo clay. What they all have in common is that they depict people or animals or groups of them, sometimes even small vignettes. They come in every style to match the time and place where they were made, as well as the esthetics and tastes of the time. They are often spiritual in nature and represent all the world religions. As mass production techniques were invented and improved through the ages, particularly in the past 100 years, figurines have found their way into most homes and today are collected by enthusiasts the world over.
