Lot 400

Ca.400 AD. A massive stucco head of a prince, modelled in the traditional Greco-Buddhist tradition with a full face, fine almond eyes, a naturalistic nose, sensitive mouth, and a large, ornate headdress, similar to a turban, atop the head and chest adorn with jewellery. Alexander the Great conquered Gandhara in 330 BCE and the reign of Indo-Greek kings who followed him introduced classical traditions that would influence Gandhara art for the following seven centuries. The stylized, curly Mediterranean hair and top knot derive from classical sculptures such as the Apollo Belvedere (330 BCE), and the sensitive modelling of the expressive face demonstrates a classical influence as well, while keeping many of the stylistic elements, like the focus on the large eyes, of Indian artwork. Much Gandhara sculpture from this time period depicts the Buddha, but this example has no hallmarks suggesting that it is him or a representation of Prince Siddhartha. Good Condition, on custom stand; 320mm/W:140mm/363mm ( 12.59in, 5.51in, 14.29in) (with stand); 2020 gr; Provenance: Private Kent collection, formed in the 1980s on the UK art market, All Items sold by Pax Romana Auctions come with professional Certificate of Authenticity.

Lot 450

Ca.300 AD. Gandhara Stucco of a elegant stucco youthful Buddha - also known as Shakyamuni Buddha, Gautama Buddha or Siddhartha Gautama, the crown prince of the Shakya Kingdom, who ultimately achieved Enlightenment and issued teachings upon which Buddhism was founded. The Buddha stands on a Lotus Flower, his hands resting in his lap in the Dhyana Mudra, as if he is meditating beneath the Bodhi tree. The Buddha's face is finely modelled with elegant features including heavy-lidded, downcast eyes, an elegantly arched browline leading to an aquiline nose, gently smiling closed lips, and stretched earlobes symbolizing his rejection of the material world in pursuit of spiritual enlightenment - all topped by an incised curly coiffure with a large ushnisha symbolizing his newfound knowledge upon Enlightenment. A special example of Greco-Buddhist art that demonstrates a strong syncretism between eastern and western traditions. overall good condition; on custom made stand; 390mm/W:165mm/H:460mm( 15.35in, 6.49in, 18.11in) (with stand); 3150gr; Provenance: From an old Professional British collection, acquired on the UK art market in the 1970s, All Items sold by Pax Romana Auctions come with professional Certificate of Authenticity.

Lot 512

Ca.300 Ad. A gorgeous, mold-formed stucco head of an elderly male, naturalistically presented in the traditional Graeco-Buddhist style which was so popular during this time. The head is composed of a gaunt face with recessed eyes beneath heavy brows, large ears with elongated lobes, a flowing mustache above an abundant beard, and well-contoured cheeks, all set beneath a bald pate. The head's somewhat emaciated depiction suggests he is an ascetic, an individual who foregoes any form of indulgence or physical pleasure to maintain and demonstrate their religious devotion. Much Gandhara sculpture from this time period depicts the Buddha, but this example has no hallmarks suggesting that it is him or a representation of an elderly Prince Siddhartha.Good condition; on custom stand ;H:105mm/H:200mm( 4.13in, 7.87in)(with stand); 575gr; Provenance: Private London collection, formed in the 1960s on the UK and European art market, All Items sold by Pax Romana Auctions come with professional Certificate of Authenticity.
