The Development of the Standing Buddha Sculpture from Hoti Mardhan to Bamiyan

Title:The Development of the Standing Buddha Sculpture from Hoti Mardhan to Bamiyan
Author:Anand, Mulk Raj
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 24 Issue no. 2; March 1971, p. 11-16
Abstract:The development of art in Bamiyan is related to the origin and development of Buddha images in Gandhara. The standing Buddha in Hoti Mardhan (Pakistan), dated to the first century, was probably derived from the Greek image of Apollo Belvedere, while the standing Buddhas in the Lahore Museum show Roman influence. The Buddha image at Bamiyan presents an integral style achieved under the classical influence of naturalistic art of the Greco-Roman tradition. The Bamiyan colossi present the concept of the universal Buddha as a supreme deity.
