Green Tara Statue
Brown and Gold Temple Paint Resin
5.75"H x 4"W x 3.25"D
Green Tara is born from a tear shed by Avalokiteshvara the Buddha of compassion. She appears as a young beautiful maiden with her body of green. She sits on a lotus throne in half lotus, with her right leg extended ready to jump serve those in need. Her left hand gestures refuge vows and her right the varada mudra because she is quick to answer the petitions of those who seek her aid. Tara is known as the great liberator from the eight kinds of dangers or fears.
