Tepe Shotor Tableau. Hadda, Nangarhar Province.
A most beautiful tableau in yet another chapel centered around a seated Buddha again attended on his right by his bodyguard, Vajrapani. Here, however, he appears, in the style of Hercules, except that he carries his attribute a thunderbolt, in place of the club that had been associate with Hercules since early Hellenistic times.
