early kaumAra iconography from Mathura

The holy city of Mathura is one of the great sthala-s for the member of the kumAra shAsana. Above are a sampling of images of what survives of the early kaumAra iconography after the several Mohammedan assaults on the city. They are mostly from the shu~Nga, though some could be from the kushAna period.
