Four 800-year-old mud pots, engraved with figurines, have been found at Avaraikari village near Ranipet in Tamil Nadu's Vellore district.

The pots with figures of king, queen, dancing girl and elephant were unearthed when uncultivated land belonging to one Srinivasan was dug up using earth movers for brick-making.

The pots were around two-and-a-half feet wide and three feet tall.

On receiving information about the discovery, Vellore Archaeological Museum officer Saravanan rushed to the village and examined them.
