Examples of clothing and styles in ancient India

probably smelted at this site side by side with the use of copper
and microliths in Period III in a chronological horizon around
1000 B. C. The Trench no. 7 A dug on the central peak of the
sprawfling mound yielded several findings of great significance
and they include two heads of hollow' terracotta (Plates XXVI
& XXVIII) and a short iron sword of ‘cut-and-thrust’ type with

tapering point and sturdy hilt (late XIV). The terracotta
heads reveal some traits of style and treatment unusual
in Indian art as their long nose starting down from the
forehead, large applied eyes and the strong protuberant chin
portray a gaunt personality and separately recall some of the
conventional traits of the art of the Aegaean world and its
neighbourhood including some of the Hittite, Philistine and
Phrygian sculptures. While one of these has a peculiar
hair-do shown by slanting scratches, the another wears a
conical helmet with diminishing circles not unlike a kind of
Hittite head-gears. In fact, the terracotta heads from Pandu
Rajar Dhibi are partly comparable with a class of excavated
long-nosed terracotta heads from Tell-el-Ashdod in Palestine
{The Illustrated London News, November, 1963, p. 906, fig. 13).
