Today’s animation is a terracotta figurine of a woman in dancing posture. Dr. Vinod Nautiyal provides these details: the figurine was found at the site of Jhusi in the town of Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh and dates to the Kushan Period (100 to 200 A.D.).

The terracotta figurine was scanned using a NextEngine Desktop 3D scanner by Mohan Naithani, Sudhir Nautiyal, and myself on August 6, 2015 in the Archaeological Computing Laboratory at HNB Garhwal University, which is located in Srinagar (Garhwal), state of Uttarakhand, India. I had traveled specifically to North India to work with Mohan and Sudhir, with guidance from Dr. Vinod Nautiyal.  Details on this project can be found here.
