The picture of the standing Buddha is from the 1st or 2nd century.

It is currently housed in the Tokyo national museum, a classic example of greco-buddhist art, the result of the confluence of Buddhism and classical Greek culture.

Rosigor – buddhist art

Greco buddhist art developed from central Asia in the 4th century BC to the islamic conqueror of the 7th century. From central Asia, Greco – Buddhism entered the Indian subcontinent and flourished in the gandhara region, today in northern Pakistan.

Style and form

In this painting, the standing Buddha is a rare Buddha, whose hands and feet are carved from marble and the body from other stones. This is a special Greek technique. Greek buddhists like Greece, free-standing Buddha statues are considered very important because they are the first manifestation of the Buddha in human form.

In a similar statue, the Buddha is depicted as a Greek king with a lamp covered with shoulders and loins – dhoti. The halos and the Mediterranean curls were inspired by the statue of the Greek god Apollo. These sculptures are generally carved in plaster, which provides great plasticity and expressiveness and is on stone. Greek buddhist art is very fine and realistic, and the folds of clothing can obviously reach the height of sculpture art. Gandharan art usually has elegant folds, which are powerful and elegant ICONS.


Since Alexander’s time, the influence of Greece has been observed on the Indian subcontinent. Anglo-greek cooperation flourished during the kushan empire of Greece to the 5th century AD. The statue was a testament to the thriving buddhist art of gandhara.
