Three female figurines with painted fan-shaped headdresses from Harappa 6

Many of the fan-shaped headdresses were painted black. While the headdress may have been worn as a symbol of distinction, it has been suggested that this type of headdress actually represents black hair stretched over a frame made of bamboo or some other material.

Approximate dimensions (W x H x D) of the most complete figurine: 6.1 x 7.5 x 3.2 cm.
