dancing figure made of a grey stone. Majority of these sculptures are, thus,
made of soft stone like steatite, limestone or alabaster.
A few bronze sculptures have also been discovered at Mohenjodaro,
Harappa, Chanhudaro and Daimabad. The best specimen is the little figure
(4.5 inches in height) of a nude dancing girl, with right hand on hips, arms
loaded with bangles, head slightly tilted and covered with curly hair, the eyes
large and half closed. A second figure, of comparable size, also comes from
Mohenjodaro. Other good examples of the skill in casting and bronze-
working are the little models of bullock-carts and ikkas from Harappa and
Chanhudaro. Four unique bronzes (elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo and chariot,
each weighing 60 kg) from the recently excavated site of Daimabad have
thrown further light on the bronze work of the Harappans.
