Chitose City’s Bibi 4 Site: Animal-shaped clay figure
This clay figure might have been modeled after a turtle, bird, seal, fur seal or some other animal, but it may be better to consider that it is an imaginary animal. It is lovingly known as “Bibi chan” due to its lovable shape and the name of the site where it was unearthed.
