It took two years, but I finally found my first figurine! And the gods watching over me must have really been impressed with my pre-breakfast goofah dumping and sifting dedication (not the most glamorous job) because I found not only one but two. Granted one is the body of a pillar figurine and the other a head (sadly not of the same figurine), but I’ll still count them separately. Though you can never plan to find something of this caliber, I was particularly not being too careful, and had the misfortune of cutting the first figurine in half. Thankfully, we were still able to gather the pieces together nicely, and it seems like it will not be too difficult to piece back together. Tomorrow will be an interesting day to dig further down in that area and see if there are more figurines or even the head or body to the ones I have already found. Note to self: always be on the lookout for figurines. Always.
