Fig. 133. Scene of hunting with bow and arrow, from Period-III. The hunter is assisted by domesticated dogs. This style, called realistic-dynamic, is characteristic of the fourth millennium BC but is likely to have persisted into later periods. It reflects a lifestyle in which hunting was the main activity. Human beings use the bow and arrow and are dressed with short skirts of animal skins. (Site HK 33. HK Archive; WARA W00339).
