This tall bird on a stand resembles the hoopoe of Nepal, a crested bird of grasslands and villages. The body of the bird is wood; the wings, tail, crest and base of the stand are of some kind of composite material, obviously quite durable as it shows very little damage. The bird stands on iron legs. It probably originates from the Terai region of Nepal where hoopoes are common.

Top of crest is 9" above tabletop.

There are twenty-one separate forms of Tara, but by far the most common are White Tara and Green Tara. The symbol of Green Tara is the blue water lily.
