Gandharan Schist Statue of Buddha - 250 AD. A finely carved stone statue of Buddha, from Gandhara, dating to the 3rd century AD. Depicting the Buddha wearing long robes, the cascading folds of material clinging to the contours of the body. Gandhara, the land of contrasts, nestled in the snowy peaks and lush valleys of the Hindu Kush, an ancient meeting place between east and west. This magnificent sculpture melds the nontheistic, devotional world of Buddhism with the god-like idealism captured in the finest Greco-Roman art.
