South Asia, Indus Valley, Harrapan/Mohenjo Daro, ca. 2800 to 1800 BCE. A lovely, thin-walled wheel-thrown pottery vessel of a bulbous form on a petite flat foot, finely decorated with an elegant eagle presenting outspread wings and meticulously delineated feathers, with striations above and below, in black against a buff ground. The Indus Valley pottery tradition extends back to the Neolithic era with hand-made bowls, jars, and vessels of various earth tone colors such as red, orange, brown, black, and cream. The Harrapan and Mohenjo-Daro cultures introduced wheel-thrown pottery like this example. A special example, perfect for any admirer of birds of prey.
