A GANDHARA CARVED SCHIST HEAD OF BUDDHA
Item Details
Description
A GANDHARACARVED SCHIST HEAD OF BUDDHA
Heavy eyelids frame the almond-shaped eyes, the forehead remains perfectly unlined, and there is no tension in the rosebud mouth, with stylized undulations of the hair. While activated with energy, movement and life, the Buddha is simultaneously in a state of otherworldly tranquility. The ancient region of Gandhara, straddling the Khyber Pass in what now spans eastern Afghanistan and western Pakistan, was for many centuries an important center of trade and commerce. Its position at the crossroads of Central Asia meant that it was exposed to goods and ideas from India, China and the Mediterranean world.
Dimension: L. 11 cm. W. 12 cm. H. 18 cm.
