A copper alloy plaque of Buddha
Ancient Region of Gandhara, 2nd century
Seated with the central fold of his heavy robe pooling in a semi-circle on top of the pedestal, his left hand clasps the thick hem, while his right hand is raised in abhaya mudra, his face with moustache, pronounced cheekbones, and arched eyebrows, his matted locks pulled over the ushnisha, with a nimbus behind and complete with the two original metal rivets that would fasten this plaque into its position on a metal stupa.
