Finished in earthy green interspersed with hints of gold, like in Her crown and shringar and raiment, one may perceive in this work an anima figure (for men), a role model (for women), and a Devi (for both). However, the Green Tara is after all indefinable; ungraspable as She is, She is none of, and more than, these things. Her transcendental compassion could be gleaned from the beauty and tenderness writ on the features of Her face, which is replete with the golden glimmer of the third eye, framed by a superbly crafted crown and kundalas that graze Her shoulders. What sets this Green Tara apart from the usual bodhisattva sculptures is the wooden pedestal that She is seated on in deep dhyana. The dark finish and the multiple tiers lend to the composition a world of elegance.
