Asia Week auction, WTF15: Afghanistan(?), Pakistan(?) – the logistics of exporting a Gandharan Bodhisattva

The Nancy Wiener Gallery has the head of a disembodied Gandharan Bodhisattva.

It’s only surprising that there aren’t more headless bodies for sale; but perhaps they are more difficult to export and import (logistically, of course)…

Head of a Bodhisattva Gandhara region, 2nd-3rd Century A.D. Gray Schist. Height: 14 inches (36 cm).
