    Answer: Kushans

    The Kushans, who were great patrons of art, ruled over a large empire in North India from AD 1 to AD 175. Two Schools of sculptural art developed during this period Gandhara and Mathura. The gandhar School was based on Greco-Roman norms encapsulating foreign  techniques and an alien spirit on the other side, The Mathura was completely India.

    Theme may vary from Buddhist to Brahmanical to sometimes secular.
    These were not influenced by Greeco-Roman techniques to that extent.
