This Stucco head of the Buddha with its long smoothly modelled face was perhaps part of a bas-relief from a religious building. Coatings of stucco protected the walls of the stuppas and Buddhist monasteries and these surfaces were ideal for artists who covered them with narrative reliefs and figures. Sadly most of these have been destroyed.
