A group of bowls and a goblet

Three bowls and a goblet of different shapes and patterns typical of the Mehrgarh IV period ca. 3500 to 3250 BC. One of the pots has a delicate leaf design, and the others show abstract, wavy designs.The Indus Valley civilisation is one of the three earliest known, along with Egypt and Mesopotamia. Crop cultivation and farming meant that populations settled. The cities in this region were meticulously planned, with sophisticated brick built structures and drainage. From as early as 5500 BC terracotta figurines, faience beads and clay pottery were being produced
