Lahore Museum

Lahore Museum
Lahore, Pakistan

Head of youthful lady in stucco with elaborate ornamentation and two floral wreaths showing Hellenistic influence.

This head belongs to a group of stucco sculptures from a Buddhist site at Rokhri in District Mianwali, artefacts discovered from which show influences of Gandhara art, though this area was traditionally not considered within the realm of Gandhara art region.

The collection comprising heads of Buddha, Bodhisattva and people representing non-religious themes is very interesting and important for the study of Gandhara Art.
