White Tara
Joined by Two Attendants
Origin: China. Circa: attributed to early 1900s'
H 8.25 in.(21cm), W 6 in.(15cm), D 3.5 in.(9cm)

Wrapped in a pleated dhoti and wearing a small headband with a figure of Avalokiteshvara, this bare chested White Tara is sparingly ornamented, with an archaic simplicity of an ascetic, her right hand is extended in wish granting gesture (Varada mudra), left hand raised in teaching gesture (Dhyana mudra ), and seated in a lotus posture above a footed three tier rectangular throne. In spite of the Qianlong Emperor seal mark (1736-1795) embossed in the back of the statue. The various elements found in this Tara shrine suggests a strong Indian stylistic influence.

There are twenty-one forms of Tara. The three most important forms are White Tara, Green Tara and Red Tara. Born from a compassionate tear of Avalokitesavara, she is a female Buddha and meditation deity, first introduced into Tibet in the seventh century, and became a Vajrayana deity with the Indian Buddhism into Tibet through Padmasambhava; weather Tara originated as a Buddhist or Hindu goddess is unclear. However, the Sanskrit name of White Tara is Saraswati, and she is associated with Longevity.
