These are likely the most accurate depictions. But because of the widely held belief (or politically-motivated propaganda) that the Buddha was from Nepal or northern India, logic dictates that the Buddha was dressed in Greek togas and other marks of a Central Asian/Scythian king because artisans were making him over in their own image. This is unlikely, given that his descendants were not so different from the neighbors, who still lived on the land, the Indo-Sakastan/Afghanistan/Shakya Land.

- Race and appearance of the historical Jesus The Book of Revelation includes John's vision of the Son of Man, which describes Jesus thus: "his feet were like unto burnt brass, His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow;" [other translations say "burnished bronze"], as if they burned in a furnace..." in a vision (1:13-16), but this vision is usually considered to refer to Jesus in heavenly form, not necessarily his appearance during his earthly life (Revelation by William C. Pender 1998, pp. 14-16; Revelation 1-11 by John MacArthur, Jr. pp. 37-39).
