Beautiful Ghandaran modeled stucco head. This artifact is from the McCloud collection. Ghandara refers to the Peshawar valley and some parts of Afghanistan and Pakistan. This region was heavily influenced by greco-roman style as a result of Alexander the Great's campaign in the far east. The facial features are more european with almond shaped eyes and a bow shaped mouth. The hair falls in loose curls and is drawn into a bun atop the head called the ushnisha, the flame of supreme enlightenment. It is from the 3-4 century, CE. It measures 27 cm deep. It measures approximately 8" tall by 6" wide.
