WALTERS ART MUSEUM REMOVES COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS ON 10,000 IMAGES

In concert with other museums,The Walters of Baltimore now makes it possible to download  free some 10,000 images from its website. The museum has enhanced the descriptions and information about the art works, making it more accessible to scholars and casual visitors alike.
 
The image below is of a Kushan goddess, ca. 100 from The Walters, a kingdom in the northern Indian subcontinent and Afghanistan in the ancient area of Bactria  whose style greatly influenced early Buddha images. Images of Roman emperors were transformed into Indian rulers.  Under their most famous ruler,  Kanishka,  who fortunately left us textual materials and coins, the empire extended all the way to the Tarim Basin (Silk Road – Kothan, Kashgar) .
