Fine, Rare ancient Gandharan Schist Makeup Palette in Museum Quality Condition.
8 cm (3 1/8") x 6.5 cm ( 2 5/8")
Schist.

Rectangular form divided into four equal rectangular compartments for different coloured makeup. Makeup was worn by both men and women, mainly as protection of the eyes from the sun. These palettes were found in both domestic and funerary settings.

The Gandharan culture was a combination of local Buddhist Indian style art, influenced by the ancient Greek Empire following Alexander the Great's invasion of India in the 4th Century B.C. It was here Alexander tried to arrange diplomatic marriages for his generals which forced their rebellion and finally caused Alexander to turn back home for Greece. He would never make it, dying on the way home and being buried in Egypt. His Empire was divided among his generals, the Gandharan Indian Empire falling to Oxyartes as Satrap in 326 B.C.
