A brass ornament of the seated Buddhist figure, the Green Tara.

This ornament forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic.

This ornament is cast from brass in Nepal and recreates the Tara in extraordinary detail.

In different branches of Buddhism, Tara is worshipped varyingly as a Buddha, a Bodhisattva or a goddess, and is the embodiment of compassionate wisdom. Her name means ‘She who Carries Across’, and she is known for being astonishingly beautiful and serene. Tara often manifests in 21 forms, representing the range of her powers; each Tara manifestation is associated with protection from a different fear or ailment. The Green Tara is associated with dynamic action, and is frequently depicted sitting on a lotus flower with her right foot touching the ground, indicating her connection to the world of suffering. Her left hand is close to her heart in the mudra of protection, while her right hand reaches forward in the mudra of giving.

A magnificent piece of home art.
