Gandhara Hariti and Pancika

The deities Panchika and Hariti, as dispensers of riches and fertility, are not part of the Buddhist pantheon. Their depiction in Hellenistic style is therefore rarely found in Gandharan art. In the known representations Panchika is usually rendered, like here, as a warrior holding a spear. His consort Hariti is regarded as a protector of children and is thus often depicted with an infant by her side.
