A beautiful body of a figure from the Indus Valley civilization. This object could very well be from the Rakhigarhi area. The figure is made of light-brown clay and is displayed in a perfect manner. 

This extraordinary figure was part of an old collection in Denmark, and the previous owner who is now deceased reached the conclusion that it was from Rakhigarhi and part of the Indus Valley Civilization.

Around the beginning of the 20th century a new civilization was unearthed - The Indus Valley Civilization. Artifacts were discovered in Pakistan at a site called Harappa. Later excavations reavealed even more cities, one of the largest is Mohenjodaro. And even though we haven't deciphered the Indus Valley script we know quite a lot of the Indus Valley Civilization. This is due to the large amount of different artifacts that have been uncovered - seals, figures and statues, pottery and much more. All this have been discovered among urban ruins along the Indus Valley river.
