Description

Tara was born from a tear of the Bodhisattva of compassion, Avalokiteshvara.  She holds a very prominent position in Tibet and Nepal.  Tara is believed to protect all beings while they are crossing the ocean of existence.

Here, Tara is represented in a standing pose known as samapada asana.  She is dressed and crowned like a Bodhisattva.  Tara's right hand is in Varada Mudra (boon-giving gesture), her left hand is in Jnana Mudra  holding the stem of the lotus on her left shoulder.  Her hair is bound up at the back; her breasts are full; she is adorned with jewelry and stands atop a double lotus base.

This is a very unique statue, the only one in this particular style we have come across in the past 10 years.
