Photographer: Caddy, Alexander E.
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of a group of carved panels from the sides of recess-niches on a stupa from Loriyan Tangai, illustrating scenes from the life of the Buddha, taken by Alexander Caddy in 1896. This style of sculpture, influenced by Graeco-Roman elements, is known as Gandharan 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 West Frontier Province.
