Antiquated Green Tara Statue Features
Our antiquated Green Tara statue features a lotus flower growing over each of her shoulders. The Buddha rose through the murkiness of samsara to achieve enlightenment. As a result, the lotus is compared to the Buddha because it rises through the muddy water of the pond to blossom in the clean air and sunshine on the surface. Indeed, Green Tara is always ready to spring into action and provide assistance to her devotees. Therefore, he right leg is positioned in panhandle and she is ready to move quickly when called.
The sculptor who completed the statue used the traditional lost wax method. All of the fine details are hand carved in her crown and jewels while she is depicted sitting on a double lotus pedestal. Additionally, Green Tara classically portrays both the Varada and Abhaya mudras. Click here to learn more about the Tara Bodhisattva.
