White Tara is highly regarded as a long-life deity. Master artisans sculpted this beautifully handmade indoor statue of White Tara in our studio. The figure is finely carved, and hand- painted with 24k Gold which took months to bring into life. Tara is seen depicted seated on the moon disc lotus with a clam expression. Her left hand is in a protective mudra, while her right hand is in a wish-granting mudra. She usually holds a stem of the Utpala lotus flower with three blossoms in her left hand.

Tara is related to Chenrezig (Avalokitesvara), the Compassionate Bodhisattva. According to one legend, she was born from Chenrezig's compassionate tears. Some also regard her as Chenrezig's consort or female manifestation. White Tara has seven eyes, one in her forehead and one on each hand and foot, symbolizing her compassionate vigilance to see the world's suffering.
