Description

Green Tara embodies the Earth element. She is a powerful goddess, a bodhisattva in female form who helps us to overcome both material and spiritual obstacles.

This beautiful statue embodies Green Tara's deep visceral connection to the Mother Earth. Here she is seated in the pose of ease (lalita asana), her right hand is shown in varada mudra (boon-granting gesture) because she is quick to respond to the petitions of those who seek her aid. Both her right and left hands gracefully hold full blooming lotuses. Lotuses are symbols of purity and spontaneous generation and hence symbolize divine birth. This piece is an exceptional find, a goddess in the simplicity of her power and radiance!

Tara's ankle length dhoti as well as the back of the base are engraved with beautiful flowing floral motifs. She sits atop a double lotus base with broad petals. The base of the piece is sealed with a double vajra symbolizing the balance of the four elements and harmony of the four directions.

This sculpture was handcrafted in Patan, Nepal by master artisans of the Shakya clan who are considered among the best in the world. These craftsmen are the modern heirs to a centuries-old tradition of creating sacred art for use in temples and monasteries. The fine metalworking techniques have been passed down from generation to generation since ancient times.

This lost wax method copper sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand cast by the very talented artists of the beautiful country of Nepal. Every piece is truly unique!

Care

If you would like your Tara statue to shine use a soft cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the copper statue.
