Remojadas figures are often depicted smiling, with tongues sticking out, and supports top and bottom to prevent their loss. Like the tongue of the Tajín toad, this probably may represent feeding of the hungry earth. It has also been suggested that these figures are in a halucinogenic stupor, in preparation for their sacrifice.

Some Veracruz figures have a distinctly Asiatic appearance, seen clearly in this example. Notice the intricate geometric patterning of the clothing.
