Khotan Figure of a Bearded Man
Khotan Figure of a Bearded Man -- The oasis state of Khotan with its capital at Yotkan, south of the Taklamakan desert, was a prosperous and powerful kingdom. Excavations have yielded many terracotta figures and ceramics of a Hellenistic style adopted from Iran. There are virtually no similarities with artifacts from Central China . From Yotkan, capital of the kingdom of Khotan, modern Xingjian province, 2nd to 3rd century CE. (The British Museum, London).
Iranian and Central Asian items became very popular among the higher classes in India during and after the Kushan period. Such items included long Central Asian coats and boots, cloud collars, and various forms of headdress. Here we see an Indian wearing a Parthian cap "kolah" hat and a cloud collar - likely both of Central Asian origin. Other figures there are wearing "tiraz" strips on their tunics.
