The finely articulated metal work exhibited in this piece draws the viewer in, the man’s eyes are wide and alert yet, the softness of his mouth and mustache give him a peaceful expression. These characteristics are similar to those found in some of the finer Gandharan pieces. He posses an urna on his forehead illustrating his spiritual center as well as his social status as a priest or leader. This piece would make a rich addition to any collection. - (PF.2888)
