A Gandhara Relief Fragment with Worshippers and Monks, ca 2nd century AD

with both monks and worshippers in this small relief, probably a fragment from a larger scene portraying Sakyamuni offering benediction at Deer Park.    

Bringing gifts to the Buddha, devotees hoped to be reborn into Sukhavati, where the living Buddha Amitabha would teach them the dharma and reveal a direct path to enlightenment. 

Condition: fragmentary, with expected minor loss that is commensurate with age, some mineral accretion throughout, very nicely carved and presents very well.   Museum quality custom mount.

Dimensions:  Width: 5.5 inches (13.97 cm),  Height:  7 inches (17.78 cm)

Provenance:   ex Christies, sale 1492, lot #27.
