Gandhara
Circa 2nd-4th century AD. 

This statue depicts the bodhisattva Maitreya. Bodhisattvas are enlightened beings who postpone their own salvation in order to help all sentient beings. The bodhisattva is an ideal type, not a depiction of an historical person like the Buddha. They are compassionate figures who help worshipers.
