2200-1900 B. C.
In 1927, a seated male soapstone figure was found in a building with unusually ornamental brickwork and a wall-niche. Though there is
no evidence that priests or monarchs ruled Mohenjo-Daro, archaeologists dubbed this dignified figure a "Priest-King." The sculpture is 17.5 centimeters (6.9 in) tall, and shows a
neatly bearded man with pierced earlobes
and a fillet around his head, possibly all that
is left of a once-elaborate hairstyle or head-dress; his hair is combed back. He wears an armband, and a cloak with drilled trefoil,
single circle and double circle motifs, which show traces of red. His eyes might have originally been inlaid
