About

Gandhara Sculpture is a large gray schist statue representing a figure of a devotee with turbant.. From the drapery and the cloth sculptures, we could understand it deals with a statue from the Gandhara area, realized between the second and the third century. Looking at the physical appearance of the subject, the connaisseurs found that our specimens is representative of the Kushana art. Its features are typical of this sovereign dinasty. Wearing a finely pleated dhoti with an elegantly draped sash on one shoulder, adorned with multiple bracelets, necklace and earrings, the statue's hair fixed with a jeweled turban, with a ball of flowers in his left hand. Provenance: Japanese collection, acquired in the 1980s. Expertise and certificate of authenticity by Christophe Hioco, dated 2012. This is an exceptionally large and finely executed example of its type, enrich your private collection with this unique and sensational piece. This old master's sculpture, of superb finesse, is a magnificent example of Gandhara art. An area that today corresponds to Pakistan and Afghanistan, that is, in the midst of trade between the West, Asia and India. This artwork will have to be subject to international french passport, which will take 1,5/2 months to be issues by French Beaux-Arts.
