Description
 
Catalogue of the Gandhara Sculpture in the British Museum


A long-awaited catalog to the British Museum's large and important collection of Gandhara sculpture. Formed mainly from early unsystematic acquisitions by soldiers garrisoning the Northwest Frontier and further enriched from some of the first excavations, the British Museum's collection is - with the collections at Peshawar, Lahore, Taxila, Chandigarh, Calcutta, Paris, Rome and Berlin - one of the principal sources for widespread academic activity that Gandhara studies have become. This catalog is the first publication by a museum of so large a body of the material: besides cult images and reliefs, it also includes reliquaries. After a substantial introduction, 680 objects, all illustrated, are individually described, where possible with comparisons and literary references. The book also contains an exhaustive bibliography, as well as concordances and indexes.
