dc.descriptionFrom these animal seals, a peculiar creation of the Indus civilization, a good deal of information concerning transcultural influence with the Near East can be obtained, First, we can see that among the animals domesticated by the Indus folk were the humped bulls, the horse, the dog, sheep, the buffalo, and the elephant, Shown here are two very excellent bull motifs, In comparison to Mesopotamian adaptations of the seals into cylindrical forms, the motifs of cats and camels do not appear in the Indus Valley, Wild beasts, such as tigers and rhinoceroses, do appear, but only the tiger, lion or leopard are used in Mesopotamia, Accompanying these legends are inscriptions in the Indus script, evidently known both north and south along the Valley, for it appeared at Mohenjo-daro as well, It is as yet unreadable, however, The idea of making a seal with a legend and inscriptions is adapted by both Egypt and Mesopotamia, evidence of the latter's import of Indus seals have been found at Kish,
