At other places, there are four bands of cross lines. Out of these, two vertical bands may be taken to mean the inward and outward tendencies, while the horizontal bands may be taken to mean the left and right tendencies of Vritra and Varuna. When human mind is free from these two types of tendencies, only then it is depicted by a pure cross or by a flying eagle. Hence, on one side of a seal there is a cross, while on the other side there is flying eagle. 

The more is the dominance of Vritra, the weaker will be the head and the Varuna vessel placed before the animal. And the horns will get more and more twisted. To show the highest influence of Vritrahood, there is a seal of a left - turned animal whose back torso and legs are like that of horse or cow, but the front portion is like that of a cock, with two twisted horns and all it's neck is full with thorns. To show lesser influence of Vritrahood, there is another seal where the mouth is right turned, horns are smaller and with less twist, neck thorns are smaller and the pa letter above it is only divided into two. This can be compared with the seal of a human figure - - - - - .

The same fact is depicted on the seal of a yogi who bears a Pranava on a Vashat on his head and there is depicted a flying eagle also. Eagle symbolizes freedom from five bondages of Vritra.

 

When the Vritra part becomes dominant in an individuality, then mind becomes absent. In this case, the head of the animal becomes absent in Indus seals. This has been named as Vritra Makha in the seals.

There are two types of three - headed human forms in Indus seals. In the left - turned Trishiraa, the seal depicts a Trident mounted on a staff. In right - turned Trishiraa, the seal depicts a triangle or a cup like thing mounted on a staff.
