Some of the female figurines are very ornate with elaborate headdresses, chokers and/or necklaces, and decorated multiple-strand belts.
Ancient Indus Valley Civilization figurines wearing chokers and related objects
One of the largest female figurines found at Harappa has a (badly broken) fan-shaped pannier headdress with black residue in the cups of the panniers and a forward-projecting face.
Some of the ornaments on female figurines were accentuated with white and/or black pigment, and some ornaments were completely rendered in pigment.
Most male figurines from Harappa do not wear headdresses. An unusual exception is a standing male figurine wearing a fan-shaped headdress usually worn by female figurines as well as a choker with pendants.
