Painted torso of a figurine from Harappa 35

Painted designs on figurines occasionally reached the level of those often found on Harappan pottery, especially in the later periods. An interesting combination of figurines with pottery was the occasional addition of animal heads to pottery, either on the rims of vessels or, in the case of birds, as schematic components of vessel stoppers and cup handles.

Approximate dimensions (W x H(L) x D): 5.4 x 9.5 x 9.0 cm.
