Exquisite Gold Plated Green Tara Statue 6"
This is a gold plated copper Green Tara Statue which is completely hand crafted in Nepal. Nepalese sculptures are popular around the world since they are made with genuine ancient techniques and with the expertise of skilled craftspeople. Our sculptor is a fourth generation artist whose family has been sculpting for over a century now.
Here Green Tara is resplendent with her luxuriant diadem, earrings and ornamental bangles. She is swathed in a highly detailed dhoti and the soft folds and intricate borders of her blouse (choli) bring her lithe body to life.
Green Tara is in the position of elegant repose in royal ease: her right foot resting on an extended lotus. Her left hand in the jhana mudra, the gesture of teaching, compliments her right hand which is elegantly arched in the varada mudra the gesture of giving. Two lotuses rise from each of her hands. Her body is youthful and sumptuous, representative of that delightful aspect of Tara which is wisdom, compassion and strength expressed in the form of an eternally young 16 year-old girl.
