Description

A charming little head of stucco, from Taxila, with delicate refined features beautifully modelled and a shock of curly hair bound by a fillet. The Greek influence is unmistakable but the edges of the eyelids are sharp as in the Gandhara School. 4 curly locks of hair across the forehead escaping from beneath the fillet.
