Looking for the realised and estimated price?

Description: Pakistan and Afghanistan, Gandharan Empire, ca. 1st century CE. Although this piece is a fragment, what remains is in fine condition, carved grey schist showing a Buddha figure with his hands pressed together in the sign of "Namaste". He has a large ushnisha and behind him is what appears to be a spray of feathers. Gandharan art was a huge hit with the British colonizers in India, and many pieces that we see today were removed from Gandharan archaeological sites by the British; it is difficult to tell what this full image would have been! Size: 4.4" W x 5" H (11.2 cm x 12.7 cm)

Provenance: ex-private NYC collection

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

Condition Report: This is a fragment of a larger piece, but what it shows is in good shape with clear artwork.
