Schist cosmetic plate of circular shape, with a decoration in relief representing Buddha standing with his right hand in blessing and appeasing posture ("abhaya mudra") and surrounded by his disciples and attendants. Graeco-Buddhist Gandhara art, ca. 1st century. Diameter: 12 cm. The plate is nicely mounted on a custom stand. Slight abrasion due to age, otherwise very good condition
