Ceramic created by the Jomon people of ancient Japan, 14,000 - 300 B.C.  The earliest Japanese art bears no resemblance of what was to come later.  The early Japanese ceramics were both striking and unprecedented.  The following excerpt was written by the scholar Gina Barnes: "Many prehistoric cultures around the world have produced ceramic representations of the human figure. Interestingly, the earliest ceramic figurines date to the Paleolithic (prior to 10,000 BC) in cultures not having pottery vessels. In contrast, Jomon Japan (14,000-300 BC) has the earliest ceramic vessels in the world as well as a rich material culture of which figurines form a large part. “
