Lost Buddha 消えたブッダ

If I were a super wealthy billionaire I would be collecting numerous Buddha statues from the Gandhara (the Kushan period.) Those exotic statues that are exquiste mixtures of East and West have been spread out all over the world to be collected and exhibited. This torso (photo) has just arrived to the San Diego Museum of Art. I cannot help imagining what kind of head it used to have... and where could the head be now? I can wonder about those things for days and nights.


I have posted this photo of the Buddha head before. I spent years looking for this head. I have asked the numbers of famous scholars and researchers, experts, curators and professors all over the world, but no one seemed to know where this head is. Some said that it had been destroyed most likely. How sad is that..? This Buddha head is unbelievably special to me. I don't know why, but every time I look at it it moves my heart so deeply. Is it possible that I was the artist who had sculpted this masterpiece??? ;)-
