The very word Gandhara evokes a historical memory which predominantly relates to an art tradition. This art is popularly called as Gandhara art, also known as Buddhist and Greco-Buddhist art. It originated and developed in Pakistan and Afghanistan about two thousand years ago. It preponderantly deals with Buddhist themes such as Jataka stories, Buddha‟s life story, Bodhisattvas and some other minor divinities. The classical period of this art activity is traditionally assigned to the first five centuries of the Common Era. 1 However, recent scholarship also proposes a late period of this art as represented by rock carving in Swat and adjoining areas. 2 But it is for certain that by the end of the millennium this art tradition had ceased to exist.
