Two rhinoceros figurines from Harappa. 42

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. Some rhinoceros figurines have applied lips, and some have an applied strip of clay down the center of the back beneath the applied decorated "hide" that is characteristic of rhinoceros figurines.

Approximate dimensions (W x H(L) x D) of the larger figurine: 3.1 x 6.0 x 8.5 cm.
