Photographer: Cole, Henry Hardy
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of Buddhist sculptures from Mir Jan, Peshawar district, taken by Henry Cole in c. 1883 showing an urdhvapatta, divided into four compartments. This photograph was taken as part of the Archaeological Survey of India, although the attribution of the photograph to Cole is probably incorrect. It depicts a small sculpture slab, boxed for transportation, with a label identifying the find-spot as 'Mian Khan Tope at Merjan', and stating 'Recd. from Major Cole R.E. Dec. 1883.' The sculpture is 'said to be in Bombay' (Bloch).
