Description
This is a gilt-bronze sculpture of White Tara. Dressed in bodhisattva outlook, she wears a crown and earrings. Her keyura and clothings are simplistic yet elegant. Seated in lotus posture, her right hand forms the varada (wish-granting) mudra on her lap, while her left hand is holding the root of a lotus flower in front of her chest. Tara is a completely enlightened buddha and having promised to appear in the form of a female bodhisattva and goddess for the benefit of all beings she especially protects from the eight fears. As a merciful protector of all people, Tara is second in popularity only to Avalokiteshvara. Worshippers pray to White Tara for longevity and good health. The colourful beads are preserved extremely well, allowing it to stand out from similar items, as well as adding visually exciting elements to the whole picture. - (CB.2896)
