Gandhara frieze winged atlas figure.



Very pleasing good sized piece in the typical dark grey
schist.



One of the less common winged variety with an unbearded
Atlas figure showing distinct Hellenistic influences.



The Classical Atlas figures are never winged but are
frequently in Gandharan iconography.



Likely to have come from a panel at the base of a stupa
but looks like it was so removed a very long time ago.



Intact apart from old corner loss as seen.



Good size at 175mm x 114mm (to top including stand:
178mm)



Nicely mounted.



2nd-3rd century.



Ex UK collection.



Price: sold GBP
