Dating back to ~3300-2000BCE, this is a real Indus Valley, partial, fertility idol!
Crafted from teracotta, these figurines would likely have been used to celebrate or enhance the fertility of women and, perhaps, to provide safety through childbirth.
This figurine segment comes secured in a ~3.25" tall frame for easy display.
The Indus Valley Civilization was a Bronze-Age civilization extending from modern-day northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India. It was one of the three early cradles of civilization in the Old World, alongside Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt.
Reaching an incredible population of an estimated 5 million people, they were a largely peaceful and creative culture.
