The ancient statue (いにしえのちょうこく, inishienochoukoku?, ancient sculpture) is a statue that appears in the Animal Crossing series. It makes its debut in New Leaf and is available for purchase at Crazy Redd's and can be collected by Happy Home Handbook in Happy Home Designer.

Dogū are small humanoid or animal figurines that were only manufactured in the Jōmon period (14,000 - 400 BC) in prehistoric Japan. These were believed to destroy illnesses and other misfortunes. The majority of examples of Dogū are supposedly modeled after female goddesses, having big eyes, small waists, and large hips which also suggest an association with fertility and shamanistic rites. Furthermore, the difference in the details of each Dogū depended on the area it was made.

Many of the Dogū, ranging from 10 - 30 cm tall were not entirely intact and were missing arms, legs, or other body parts, which in many cases are believed to be cut off in fertility rituals.
