An Indus Valley red terracotta statuette of a male figure, rendered in a stylised manner with an emphasis on the facial features, such as the eyes, nose, mouth and eyebrows.
The Indus Valley Civilisation extended from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and north-west India. It was one of three early and widespread cradles of civilisation along with Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. At its peak, the Indus Valley Civilisation, which included such sites as Harappa and Mohenjo-daro, may have had a population of over five million, who developed new techniques in pottery, seal carving, and metallurgy.
