Devotion in Stone: Gandharan Masterpieces from a Private Japanese Collection

New York
Devotion in Stone: Gandharan Masterpieces from a Private Japanese Collection

Sale Overview

One of the most important collections of Gandharan art in private hands, Devotion in Stone: Gandharan Masterpieces from Private Japanese Collection features iconic and well-published examples of Buddhist figures, friezes and narrative reliefs. Highlights include a rare and magnificent gray schist triad of Buddha Shakyamuni with bodhisattvas, one of a very few dated Gandharan works of art known; published in more than thirty publications, the triad is perhaps the most important Gandharan sculpture to come to market. The sale also features a superbly-carved large and important gray schist figure of a bodhisattva, a monumental gray schist bust of a bodhisattva, and a very finely-carved gray schist figure of Buddha Shakyamuni.

We welcome you to view by appointment in our Rockefeller Center galleries from 16 - 21 September. Please contact +1 212 636 2190 or amehta@christies.com to set an appointment.
