Housewarming icons

When Peruvians build a house in the countryside, all the neighbors pitch in to help kind of like a barn raising in the US. As a final token of good will, the workers contribute the little ceramic icons which signify strength (the bulls), the smaller animals (children), and finally the religious symbols.
