Excavations of the Indus cities have given us a lot of evidences of a highly developed civilization existed in this area four to five thousand years ago and the artistic activities by Indus people. These discoveries are very important, as they tell us about their lifestyle, script, trade and religious beliefs. The Indus Valley civilization is one of the initial urban civilizations in the world, along with its contemporaries, Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. The people of this ancient Indus river valley developed new techniques in handicraft. The forms of art found from various sites of the civilization include bronze sculptures (like dancing girl), stone figurines (like a bust portrait of a bearded nobleman or high priest in sandstone), seals (seals made of terracotta and soapstone with the motifs of animals, human figure and god), terracotta figures made of a fire baked clay (handcrafted using pinching method), jewelry (includes bangles, bead necklaces, chokers and many more) etc.
