Moulds

Positive evidence of a large use of moulding techniques is represented at Tapa Sardar by the huge quantity and variety of stamped elements, both architectural and figural: flowers, leaves, jewel-like plaques, scrolls, animal protomes, rock-like elements – assembled in different combinations for the realization of cornices, architectural frames, landscapes – but also parts of figures, figurines, modular elements such as lock of hair and flames and so on. However, only a few specimens of the original moulds survived.
