Haniwa

Haniwa were originally produced in Japan during the Kofun period. They are typically small terracotta figures that were made in many forms. In videogames they are predominately the same type: a cylindrical boy with round top, hollow round eyes and mouth, and handle-like arms, one bent upwards, one bent downwards. 'Haniwa' literal translates to 'clay rings'.
