  • Head of Buddha, ca. 4th century
    Pakistan, ancient region of Gandhara
    Stucco with traces of paint; H. 7 3/4 in. (19.7 cm), W. 4 1/2 in. (11.4 cm), D. 5 1/8 in. (13 cm)
    Rogers Fund, 1913 (13.96.4)

    This head shows close stylistic affinities with early stucco production from Gandharan sites at Taxila. The sensitive modeling has an expressive quality that is not seen in the more formal images in stone from this period.
