The emergence of Buddha art was in the first and second centuries. It was the product of a mixture of Indian and Western cultures, influenced by ancient Greece. When Sakyamuni was alive more than two and a half thousand years ago, he opposed the idolatry of Brahmanism in Indian society. In the 600 years since Buddhism came into being, its followers have been following the teachings of Sakyamuni and refraining from idolatry. In the history of India, until the first century AD. There are no statues or paintings of Buddha. In the Mahabodhi Temple of Buddha Gaya, built during the time of Ashoka, many statues and Buddha stands can be seen.
