Dakini Kurukulla, Red Tara Statue
This Kurukulla, also known as the Red tara statue, is handmade by an artist from Kathmandu. The dakini is depicted in a wrathful expression with hair flowing upward like blazing fire. She is dancing with her right leg lifted, stomping on a defeated human, illustrating both exterior and interior problems. She has four arms and a variety of weapons, suggesting her ability to bewitch and captivate men's and women's hearts. She prepares to shoot a magnificent silver crafted arrow whose shaft is made of flower details and whose flight is made of leaf details, using two hands to draw a bow made of silver. Her other left-hand holds a lasso while her right hand holds a flower goad beautifully silver crafted with various details. They also represent her capacity to sway others to aid and defend her followers.
