Brief Description This terracotta bull figurine is entirely handmade with cream slip on it. Probably a knife might have been freely used in shaping the parts of body in details. Around the neck is a garland or plaited rope. This bull has been crafted with great sensitivity, which reflects vigour and power of the bull cult prevalent at that time. among the livestocks, the bull is depicted faithfully and artistically by the harappans in terracotta.
