Carved from zitan (sacred Sandalwood) of Southern India and Nepalese region, this gorgeous antique Tara statue embodies the mystery of ages and the spiritual depth of the Mother Goddess. Here we observed the features of her face, with the characteristic shapes and and fleshy figure showing a distinctive stylistic influences of Kashmir / Tibet origins. She is clad in dhoti, voluptuous with full breasts and sumptuously arched hips, her left foot stands forward ever so slightly, she is atop a double-lotus pedestal, right hand poised in the gesture of granting sublime realizations, left hand holding the stem of a full bloom lotus that clings to her arm and rises above her shoulder, hair double-crowned in a tall chignon, long string of mala beads that wrapped around her body and circled across her knees, richly jeweled and endowed with semi-precious stones. Her countenance reflects a presence illumined with equanimity that radiates with compassion. We acquired the Goddess Tara from China over 20 years ago. Nevertheless we believed this rare gem is Tibetan, and conservatively attributed it to be 19th century or earlier.
