There is obvious damage on the face of this head, but the condition is stable.
Little is known of the Bura civilization (ca. 3rd - 11th centuries). The site was first discovered in 1975, excavations began in 1983. Most of the objects dug up are terracotta heads or vessels. Many of these terracotta heads are fragments from vessels or figures. This one is mounted on a square black iron base.
