The Global Connections of Gandhāran Art:
Proceedings of the Third International Workshop of the Gandhāra Connections Project, University of Oxford, 18th-19th March, 2019

Edited by Wannaporn Rienjang and Peter Stewart.

The third volume of the Gandhara Connections project at Oxford University’s Classical Art Research Centre presents a range of studies on the relationship of Gandhara to other art traditions. It addresses the project's key theme – the relationship between Gandharan art and the cultures of the Roman Empire and Greece – as well as examining the influence of this region on imagery elsewhere in Central Asia, South Asia, and China.
