Photograph of a potter from Hala near Moro in Sindh, Pakistan, taken by Henry Cousens in 1896, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections: Western India 1894-96. This three-quarter length portrait shows the potter with examples of Hala pottery. Hala, thirty-five miles north of Haidarabad, was the main centre of pottery manufacture in Sind. Both tiles and ornamental pottery was produced at Hala. Due to their reputation some of the potters at Sind and Multan were brought to the Bombay School of Art for a time to superintend.
