Mohenjo-daro

1973 cover celebrating 50 years since initial excavations at Moenjo-daro. Highlighted are the famous artifacts, including the soapstone figure known as the 'Priest-King' on cachet. On the stamp, to the right of the the 4,500 year old bronze 'Dancing Girl' statuette, is possibly a sewer structure. A little strange they chose to put what is likely a grave good visually next to this structure.
