The Pashupati Seal 
The famous Pashupati seal (Mohenjo-Daro Seal No.420) shows a figure with three faces, seated on a throne in a yogic posture. He is wearing a horned head-dress with a cluster of feathers or leafy branches in the center. His body is adorned with many necklaces, and his arms are covered with bangles. He is surrounded by four wild animals – elephant, rhinoceros, tiger and water buffalo. Below his throne are a pair of ibexes.

The Gond tribes of Central India have been in the news lately because of their linguistic connections to the Indus Valley civilization.

According to Gondi scholar Dr.Motiravan Kangale, the letters of the Gondi script, which can be found inscribed in the interiors of the Gotuls (youth dormitories) in the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh, resemble the Indus script - in particular, the Late Harappan style of writing. He provided a number of decipherments of the Indus seal inscriptions using the root morphemes of the proto-Dravidian Gondi language.
