India (Jammu and Kashmir, possibly Akhnur)

A major Buddhist monastery and stupa site was excavated at Akhnur (Akhnoor), near Jammu, revealing a series of both large- and small-scale terracotta reliefs decorating the monuments. These heads once formed part of those sculptural programs and likely depict Buddhist laity.
