As sad as it is to say this but this statue is saved because it is not in Gandhara but in the British Museum.

Times have changed. People's mood has changed. Time to stop announcing what spectacular art you have & which is not rightfully yours. Sorry, that's the first thought that comes to my mind when I see these pictures.

Thank you for preserving wonderful artifacts of world history for all humans to enjoy, when they otherwise would have been destroyed.

Gautama Buddha’s statue gracefully displayed at the British Museum. Art preserved is true love of Art !! 🌹

And here come all the insta activists crying about artifacts currently being preserved in this museum. They're not going back, so just be quiet and move on if you're so easily offended.
