"The minor antiquities found in this building included a number of terracotta figurines, and the base of a terracotta statuette, but on this base only the feet of a standing figure now remain, with some uncertain object between them."

- John Marshall, Annual Report of the Director-General of Archaeology in India, 1920-21, p. 17.

"This fragmentary terracotta sculpture is not from the Harappa Phase occupation and is without any doubt dated to a much later occupation of the site, possibly even from the Gupta Period. It appears to be part of a larger carved terracotta panel of a standing image."

- Jonathan Mark Kenoyer, 2021.
