A few figurines are not clearly male or female, or even anthropomorphic or animal. One unusual recently discovered figurine has no clear sex characteristics.
Ancient Indus Valley Civilization figurines wearing chokers and related objects
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.
Some of the ornaments on female figurines were accentuated with white and/or black pigment, and some ornaments were completely rendered in pigment.
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.
