Zebu Bull Seal of the Ancient Indus Valley
The ancient sites of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, in modern Pakistan, existed between 2600 and 1900 BC as a vibrant civilization. During the excavations, archeologists found a number of objects buried underground in these sites. These objects included terracotta figures, bronze figures, metallic vessels, gold ornaments, metallic and precious stone beads, glass and ivory objects, etc.
In addition to this, more than 3500 steatite seals were found. Steatite stones were etched or engraved with patterns, and polished pieces were baked to Mohenjo Daro’s finished tough seals. Many seal designs have an image of an animal in the center or below and some form of the script above. Some seals have celestial illustrations. This seal has a depiction of an animal that looks like a zebu bull. Since the Indus Valley script is still undeciphered, we can only guess what those seals mean. Possibly we may assume that during this time a common supernatural belief existed in the region and many seals represent such belief.
