This eBay listing has ended : An Ancient Stucco GHANDARAN BUDDHA Bust circa 300 A.D.
A stucco bust of The Buddha from the area of Afghanistan/Pakistan circa 300 A.D. It measures 3.5" x 4" and weighs 509 g. The left lower jaw section has been cracked and filled (probably with the same stucco of origin). Areas where the original patina has been scratched off are the same color as the area that has been repaired. This was part of a larger relief sculpture as the depth of the head area is deeper than anatomical normality. The serene expression of this subject is very attractive. This is not a reproduction and I will pay for the shipping both ways if you do not agree.
