The ram figurines are also sometimes decorated with black stripes and patterns. Some may be painted black. Occasionally, incised "wool" is depicted on the bodies of sheep figurines. Approximate dimensions (W x H(L) x D): 3.3 x 6.6 x 6.3 cm.
In addition to domestic animals, wild animals such as the markhor (wild goat) are represented in the corpus of Indus figurines.
Other depictions of wild animals include deer figurines with pronged antlers. Deer bones found at Harappa may indicate that deer were hunted. Approximate dimensions (W x H(L) x D): 3.7 x 10.0 x 6.0 cm.
Larger wild animals such as the rhinoceros with its distinctive "horned" snout are also represented. Although the rhinoceros is no longer found in many areas of the Indus region, rhinoceros bones have been found at Harappa.
Although it was surely a wild animal, some of the rhinoceros figurines wear collars. While a collar might indicate domestication, it is unlikely that this is the case with the rhinoceros, although they may have been held as captives. Approximate
It is unknown whether elephants were domesticated in the Indus Civilization. However, one of the few elephant figurines from Harappa is a head with large stylized ears and red and white stripes painted across the face.
Another elephant figurine has an undecorated head with two flat ears and a trunk (all broken) on a round hollow body. Approximate dimensions (W x H(L) x D): 4.5 x 7.1 x 7.1 cm.
Many of the feline figurines are depicted with collars around their necks (as with the rhinoceros). Rather than indicating that these large cats were tame, this symbol of domestication may have been used in rituals of sympathetic magic to obtain a
