Seated Buddha 3D Model
From the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco:
- Place of Origin: Northern Pakistan, perhaps Jamalgarhi, Peshawar valley, ancient region of Gandhara
- Date: approx. 300-500
- Materials: Stone (schist)
- Dimensions: H. 34 in x W. 19 1/4 in x D. 7 in, H. 86.4 cm x W. 48.9 cm x D. 17.8 cm
The Buddha’s hands are held in a gesture of preaching known as “turning the wheel of the doctrine.”
Beneath his low throne appears a seated princely figure flanked by kneeling devotees who may represent donors or perhaps gods urging the Buddha-to-be to start his quest for enlightenment.
