The Devi is in a state of samadhi. She is withdrawn deep in Her dhyana with Her eyes shut. The features of Her face are gathered in a composure of calm and reserve, as befits the Buddhist meditative ethos. She is Devi Tara, the divine queen mother, who rules over the hearts of devotees everywhere. They visualise Her in their dharana in an effort to attain to Her spiritual prowess, which is given away by Her name (in Sanskrit, ‘Tara’ stands for ‘one who facilitates transcendence’).
The Nepalese sculptural tradition has a taste for unusual media, to which this work of art stands testimony. She is sculpted from copper, Her burnished skin glowing under the faintest hint of light. From Her long, sharp nose to the brow that resembles the gracious wings of an albatross, Her beauty is enough to stun the onlooker and make them stop dead in their tracks. Such beauty and, more importantly, such a stance could belong to none other than Devi Tara of the Buddhist pantheon.
This mask of the Devi has been handpicked for the sheer devotion that has been poured forth into the make. It is the sculptor’s shraddha that reflects in the complex crown that towers over Her head and the bejewelled tassels that rest on Her brow. Flaming kundalas flank Her face, and a necklace of gold completes the composition.
