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!
This statue is made of copper and is inlaid with coral and turquoise. Her ankle length dhoti is engraved with floral motifs. She sits on a single lotus base with broad petals. Located on the lower backside of the statue you will find an engraved wheel and deer emblem representing the natural harmony and fearlessness of the deity’s pure realm.
