Two Bamiyan Ceramic Bowls, $1,200 EACH, and One Bamiyan Ceramic Saucer $800, (Ancient Afghanistan circa 12th - 13th Century CE.) All approximately 6" diameter, some wear and small chips due to age but in very good condition. Ex: A. Rosen collection, New York. Many statues of Buddha were carved into the sides of cliffs facing Bamyan city. The two most prominent of these statues were standing Buddhas, now known as the Buddhas of Bamyan, measuring 55 and 37 meters high respectively, that were the largest examples of standing Buddha carvings in the world. They were probably erected in the 4th or 5th century CE. They were cultural landmarks for many years and are listed among UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. In March 2001 the Taliban government decreed that the statues were idolatrous and ordered them to be demolished with anti-aircraft artillery and explosives.
