Ancient Indus Valley Pottery Zebu Bull Figure - 3500 Bc For Sale

Ancient Indus Valley Pottery Zebu Bull Figure - 3500 Bc

An ancient Indus Valley,Bronze Age pottery Zebu bull, dating to the fourth Millennium B.C.

A figure of a Zebu bull standing on four short, conical legs with pronounced hump.

This piece dates to the Mehrgarh periods IV - VI, approximately 3500-2800 B.C. It is now believed that the pottery of Mehrgarh supersedes that of Mesopotamia in being the earliest known polychrome ceramics produced by Humans. Exciting new evidence from Mehrgarh during this period has come to light recently, showing us that these people even had knowledge of dentistry!

The little known Indus Valley Culture flourished throughout large areas of modern India and Pakistan in the 4th and 3rd Millenniums B.C., along the Indus, a river arising from the snowy Himalayan mountains. When the snow melted in the spring, the river used to flood, providing fertile soil and the perfect conditions for civilization to develop. Public knowledge of this culture is almost non-existent in the west, largely because the major towns of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro were only discovered at the turn of the last century. However, theseBronze Age people had knowledge of town planning, sewers and sophisticated architecture long before the Greeks and Romans. Indus valley artifacts are gaining popularity on the art market as collectors start to appreciate this fascinating culture and the imaginative art that it produced.

Length:3 1/2 inches.

Condition: Horns fractured, as shown. Right rear leg restored, some original pigment surviving. It is worth noting that the majority of Indus valley bull figures on the market are modern reproductions. Although fragmentary this is a rare and genuine example.

Provenance:

Ex. British private collection, acquired 1980's.
