Devi Tara in the welcoming stance. She bears in Her hands a lamp, shallow-bottomed with just one wick, yet enough to light up Her whole face and decolletage. Tara is a princess of yore who went on to become a Bodhisattva and attained the Buddhist heavens. In this handmade brass murti, there are several aspects by which She is distinguished.
The five spired crown, with a particularly tall and ornate central spire, is the chief of them. Lengthened earlobes, a fixture in every Bodhisattva iconography, framing an angular face with strikingly handsome features. Peacocks perched on Her fine-boned shoulders. Bare but for the silken dhoti wound around Her hips.
Finally, a plinth embossed with lotus petals to complete the Bodhisattva Tara iconography. Such a Tara with the dia in Her hands lit with ghee would make every visitor to your home or office feel divinely welcome.
