Ancient Bactrian Stones
Bactria, Hindu Kush, Central Asia
2nd to 3rd Millenium B.C.
Heights ranging from 23 cm to 29 cm (9 to 11.5 in)
Many are of waisted cylindrical form with a single groove to the upper surface and although their purpose is not known, they have been interpreted as idols due to their abstracted human form.
The reason for the surprising variety of stone used to carve these objects is because the mountain range was formed (and is still forming) from the collision of the Indian and Eurasian continental plates which began 50,000,000 years ago; this has brought to the surface both ancient and more recent rock formations
Ex English private collection formed in the 1970's
