They originated in Greece and spread throughout Western Asia, becoming particularly popular in Gandhara. The amorini are shown holding an undulating garland on their shoulders, with bunches of fruit hanging at the bottom of the loops, while gods and goddesses occupy the spaces above. [show more]

Subject: Buddha
Description:Carved schist head of the Buddha The halo, which came to be an inevitable tribute for all Buddhist divinities, probably derives from the ancient Iranian convention of symbolising the celestial light of Ahura Mazda with a disc or sun. From this source, the halo found its way into early Christian and Buddhist art as a means of signifying the divine radiance emanating from the person of Christ or the Buddha. [show more]
