Well here you go, a 2nd century carving of the goddess Nike from Ephesus:
The Sassanid carving is very likely based on similar Greco-Roman examples, particularly in that it wears Greek dress; a diadem and peplos, namely.
Apropos of nothing, I was startled to see this image as I have a foto of my spouse posing in front of this in such a way that Nike is placing the laurel crown on her head!
i am not aware of european art research on european topics, but on indian topics i simply found a complete lack of understanding/in depth research . . .
Can you give us some examples of bad western research into Eastern/Indian art so we can know to avoid it or at least question what we’re studying? Thanks
