Indus Valley Civilization (Harappan Civilization), ca. 3000 BCE. A lovely bichrome pottery vessel, its curved walls adorned with animals of the land and sea - a pair of antelope gracefully bowing their heads to graze, a pair of fish swimming above, matrices comprised of wavy motifs probably representing seaweed, and striations - all in dark brown/black on a tan ground. This piece was wheel-made, one of the many innovations of this civilization. The Indus Valley Civilization covered a wide geographic region, from northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India, in the basin of the Indus River; key associated sites are the cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro (a UNESCO World Heritage site). Size: 5.25" in diameter x 5.875" H (13.3 cm x 14.9 cm)
Provenance: private Orange County, California USA collection, acquired before 2000
