Standing Buddha with plain round halo behind the head made of dark grey micaceous slate, Gandhara stone. The plinth beneath the feet is decorated with two beautiful rosettes. His hands were in the abhaya and vara mudra but since have broken off. A dowel hole can be seen in the right hand. The flowing robe and curvy hair is characteristic of Gandharan Buddhist sculpture and shows a strong Greco-roman influence.
