Here we present the so called ‘Graeco-Buddhistic’ art from the Gandhara region in northwest Pakistan and the neighbouring parts of eastern Afghanistan, dating from the 1rst to the 5 th century AD

fragment of Nanda conversion scene
fragment of Nanda conversion scene

The scene of the conversion of Sundarananda or Nandi tells the story of how the brother in low of Lord Buddha, Nanda, is following the Buddha on a begging round at Kapilavastu while back home his fiancée Sundari is preparing herself for the marriage in the palace, assisted by her female servants. In the end Nanda will not return to the palace and will accept to be ordained.
We recognize the scene at some very typical elements: the trapezoidal roof with sawtooth cornice, the laurel wreaths hanging against the wall, and the composition of the three woman.

A so-called ‘place-scene’ in which the luxury live inside the palace walls is shown, here a fragment of musicians and dancers. Remark the heavy bangles around the foot of the dancing woman, and the very expressive way of posing her legs. Despite of the thinness of the schist plate the sculptor succeeded in putting a lot of dynamism and movement in this scene.
