The Hephthalites invaded and ruled far Northern India in the 5th-7th centuries. These statues may not be in proportion, but have some interesting features:

Hephthtalites in India is an army I've been tempted to collect simply because the DBX list is so trippy (superior light horse, superior elephants, and some really crappy subject troops). I guess these sculptures go well with the trippiness …

Is any of that still left in Afghanistan, or have the religious barbarians erased all evidence of their existence too, the way they've done with Kushan murals and statues?
