Cattle, water buffalo, sheep, dogs, elephants, rhinoceroses, monkeys, birds and many other animals are represented in the figurines of the Indus Civilization. Some of the animals depicted in figurines are familiar to us today, but others are no longer common or may have been mythical creatures, caricatures or representations of humorous characters in stories. The significance of these animals and the affection of people towards some of them are clear despite their relatively simple features.
