Gandharan Stucco Buddha Head 300 A.D. 1.200 $
This remarkable head of Buddha comes from the ancient kingdom of Gandhara (current Eastern Afghanistan~Northern Pakistan), which lasted from the first millennium BC to the 11th century AD. That kingdom was located in a region that has known many influences throughout its history; it was the easternmost part of Alexander the Great’s empire, and at his peak during from the 1st century to the 5th century, Gandhara was ruled by kings who were devoted Buddhists, the Kushan kings, and under whom a wonderful fusion of Greek and Buddhist art was allowed to flourish.
