Photograph of a Buddhist sculpture from Loriyan Tangai taken by Alexander Caddy in 1896. This print depicts the Buddha with his attendants. This style of sculpture, influenced by Graeco-Roman elements, is known as Gandharan style and takes its name from the ancient kingdom of Gandhara (Peshawar) which, together with Udyana (Swat), corresponded fairly closely to the northern part of the North-Western Frontier Province.
