A fragmentary grey schist head of Buddha. The beautiful face is modelled with a meditative expression, gently smiling lips, hair finely combed terminating in an usnisa; raised urna positioned between the delicately arched eyebrows; mounted on a purpose-made stand.

The Gandharan empire was located in what is now largely occupied North-West India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The art and sculpture of the region that has come to be known as Gandharan combines Hellenistic or Graeco-Roman artistic techniques and modelling with Indian Buddhist iconography to create a recognisable hybrid.

Provenance: Formerly part of the Professor Zahid Butt Collection.

Period: c. 1st - 2nd century A.D.
