Description
The Gupta Empire was an ancient Indian empire that existed at its zenith from approximately 320 to 550 AD Gupta art flourished in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent from the 4th to the 6th century AD and its aesthetic canons and iconographic models influenced the artistic traditions of all neighbouring countries. This period was a time of sophisticated urbanity and the peace and stability of the era was propitious to the development of religious thought, sciences, literature and theatre, and made the Gupta period a golden age in Indian history. The figurine depicts Buddha on a horse. The artist has conveyed a sense of powerfulness thanks to the robust modelled torso, the sturdy shoulders and the gracefulness in the clothing of Buddha, as well as his serene yet regal facial expression. - (LO.1393)
