The man you see here would be a priest from the Indus Valley civilization (also known as the Harappan civilization) which developed along the Indus River in what is now Pakistan between 3300 and 1300 BC, thus laying the foundations for later urbanized culture in South Asia. Although their distinctive written script remains to be deciphered as of this writing, it is likely the Indus Valley people spoke a Dravidian language like those spread across the Indian subcontinent prior to the Aryan incursions from Central Asia after 1500 BC. The face paint on the priest's face is speculative, but is inspired by face-painting traditions among some Dravidian peoples today.
