This antique gilt bronze figure of Tara dates to 11th-12th century Nepal.
It measures approximately 12 inches tall (13 inches with custom wooden stand).
It is in outstanding condition, especially considering that it is over 900 years old.
NOTE: This 900+ year old bronze does have one condition issue:
The lotus flower on Tara's left shoulder is bent forward slightly and needs to be repositioned professionally.
It is a relatively simple and inexpensive process, but it should be done by someone with experience in such matters.
Just bending it back might have the unwanted effect of snapping it off. It needs to be heated, softened and gently moved back into place by a pro.
Tara is the most important goddess in the Buddhist pantheon.
She stands, gracefully and powerfully modeled in a hip-shot posture.
Her right hand is held in a gesture of varadamudra (fearlessness and wish granting).
Her left hand is held in a teaching gesture (vitarkamudra) while holding a lotus flower rising to her shoulder.
Her face has a serene expression with downcast eyes flanked by large earrings.
She is wearing a diaphanous dhoti rolled down to the waist. It is incised with floral patterns and secured with a jeweled sash inset with precious stones.
She also wears a jeweled neck piece, armbands and tiara enclosing her up swept hair.
Tara occupies a unique status in that she has mythological origins as a goddess, as a Bodhisattva and is also frequently viewed as a Buddha.
