Gandhara style of Art

Author(s) Sunita
Country India
Abstract The new style of art that emerged in the north-western regions of the country due to the influence of Greek art is called 'Gandhara style'. Gandhara is the ancient name of a region in present-day northwest Pakistan. Which is surrounded by the Hindu Kush mountain range and the Himalayan foothills to the north. Statues of Buddha and Bodhisattva were mainly made in Gandhara style. Gandhara art is male dominated and realistic art. In this, the physical physique of Buddha has been shown in relief. Buddha's hair is curly, he has a moustache, he has slippers on his feet, he is wearing transparent clothes and his body is clearly visible. That's why it is also called nude art. The statue of Buddha in penance is its best work. Gandharan style Buddha sculptures resemble the Greek god Apollo.
