The head of a Bodhisattva is a beautiful example of stucco
figures from Gandhara. It shows a perfect combination of
physical beauty and spiritual content. The almond shaped
eyes, the gently carved eyebrows, straight nose, sensuous
lips, the soft outline of the oval face and the hairdo are all
suggestive of Gandhara features and reflect the serene,
contemplative mood that imbues it with a lifelike quality.
