Photograph of a sculpture piece from Loriyan Tangai taken by Alexander Caddy in 1896. This print shows the Buddha seated on a lotus throne with two attendants. This style of sculpture, influenced by Graeco-Roman elements, is known as the 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.
