A Very Fine Painted Terracotta Zebu Bull - Harappa

A VERY FINE PAINTED TERRACOTTA ZEBU BULL - HARAPPA

Typical of the style discovered during excavations at the ancient city of Harappa, this charming and very finely modelled zebu bull is an important addition to any collection of "ancient" art. Crafted from terracotta, the piece has stunted legs, long horns and of course, the distinctive pronounced hump. All features including the eyes are decorated in black pigment.

BACKGROUND:
Harappa was a city in the Indus civilization that flourished around 2600 to 1700 BC in the western part of South Asia. The greater Indus region was home to the largest of the four ancient urban civilisations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, South Asia and China. It was not discovered until the 1920's. Most of its ruins, even its major cities, remain to be excavated. The ancient Indus Civilisation script has not been deciphered. Many questions about the Indus people who created this highly complex culture remain unanswered, but other aspects of their society can be answered through various types of archaeological studies.

3 inches in length (76.5 mm). Some expected slight wear to the feet. One horn tip rejoined.
