A small, but rare non-gilt, bronze image depicting one of the twenty-one Taras, probably number fifteen. The goddess is seated in the usual manner with the right foot extending over the base. The right hand holds a vase (kalasha) and the left hand holds the lotus. It is a votive image to carry with, often inside amulet boxes called “gao” to be worn on the body as protection. Tibet, 16th cent. H. 8,2 cm. Condition: Rubbed due to age and handling. Original closing.
