Bronze Statue: Found in a house in Mohenjo-Daro, it represents a young dancer who's wearing a necklace and bracelets. She is shown very relaxed and confident. This suggests some kind of dance form in their culture. Other sculptures are found of animals which stresses cultural importance of animals.

The Great Bath: They had a huge public bath area and private wells at each house. The bath was the earliest public water tank. Two staircases came down into the rock interior. The Indus River Valley is known for their belief in sanitation and concern for hygiene.

Pottery: The Indus Valley people learned to use the earliest form of a potters wheel and to fire bricks into rock hard clay in kilns. They used this for the foundations of large buildings, seals, jewelry, and vessels. Seals were ceramic tiles which had animals or people (gods) engraved on them and used culturally and economically.

Sewage System: The Indus Valley dug trenches all around their society to filter out sewage waste. This showed how technologically and agriculturally advanced this urban society was. This made the valley more efficent then other societies.
