A gray schist relief panel of bodhisattvas
Gandhara, 2nd./3rd century
The two nimbated bodhisattvas wear a three-strand turban around rosette-ornamented crests. Each stand in frontal pose with right hands raised in a gesture of reassurance and the left resting on the hip supporting thickly pleated sanghati ends.
