THE STUPA

Pakistan

Taxila, Pakistan

2-4 A.D.

The stupa (“stupa” is Sanskrit for heap) is an important form of Buddhist architecture, though it predates Buddhism. It is generally considered to be a sepulchral monument—a place of burial or a receptacle for religious objects. At its simplest, a stupa is a dirt burial mound faced with stone.

The Stupa is also known by synonymous names such as Chaithya, Dagaba, Thupa, Seya and Vehera. Stupas designed and constructed in Sri Lanka are the largest brick structures known to the pre-modern world.

Buddhist stupas were originally built to house the earthly remains of the historical Buddha and his associates and are almost invariably found at sites sacred to Buddhism. The concept of a relic was afterward extended to include sacred texts.

SINGLE HORNED BULL SEAL

  • 20″ X 16″
  • Acrylic on Canvas
  • Original

The Indus seals, also called Harappan seals depicting finely executed carvings, approximately dating as far back as 5000 years, are highly sophisticated heritage artifacts which mirror the religious, social and intellectual excellence of Indus valley civilization. The seals, many as tiny as 3cms / 3cms, and weighing nine to ten grams approximately were discovered in the vast expanse of Indus civilization sites of Harappa – Mohenjo-Daro and north western parts of Pakistan.

The thousands of seals, unearthed in the Indus valley, depicted in most of them the picture of a bull with single horn and mysterious symbols inscribed. The existence of such an animal has not been found so far nor the symbols deciphered. These seals are the archaeological proof of the civilization that existed around 1500 B.C.

2-4 AD
Taxila, Pakistan

The “Fasting Buddha” is another masterpiece from ancient Gandhara that was excavated in Sikri, Pakistan, in the 19th centuryThe sculpture was donated to the Lahore Museum of PakistaN, where it is still displayed.

Strictly speaking, the statue should be called the “Fasting Bodhisattva” or the “Fasting Siddhartha,” since it portrays an event that took place before the Buddha’s enlightenment. On his spiritual quest, Siddhartha Gautama tried many aesthetic practices, including starving himself until he resembled a living skeleton. Eventually, he realized that mental cultivation and insight, not bodily deprivation, would lead to enlightenment. ​

Pakistan

Mohin-Jo-Daro, Pakistan

2200-1900 B. C.

In 1927, a seated male soapstone figure was found in a building with unusually ornamental brickwork and a wall-niche. Though there is

no evidence that priests or monarchs ruled Mohenjo-Daro, archaeologists dubbed this dignified figure a “Priest-King.” The sculpture is 17.5 centimeters (6.9 in) tall, and shows a

neatly bearded man with pierced earlobes

and a fillet around his head, possibly all that

is left of a once-elaborate hairstyle or head-dress; his hair is combed back. He wears an armband, and a cloak with drilled trefoil,

single circle and double circle motifs, which show traces of red. His eyes might have originally been inlaid
