Antique Java Style Majapahit Seated Bronze Devi Tara Statue - Protector & Preserver - 19cm/8"
Measurements Height 19cm/8"
An antique Java Style seated bronze Devi Tara sculpture in the 13th century Majapahit style.
In Buddhism, Tara is a Bodhisattva. She is the Goddess of Compassion. Here she is seated on round double lotus petal pedestal which is itself stood on a square pedestal. She wears a richly bejewelled dhotis and upavitas.
Tara holds in her right hand the stem of a lotus flower which extends above her shoulder. The lotus flower represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all.
Her face has a serene downcast gaze. Tara wears a decorative Javanese style tiara, on her head, in front of her Kirita-Makuta or tall conical crown. This symbolises her control over Positive and Negative attitudes. She has an aquiline nose and elongated earlobes with large earrings.
A circular aureole with flame rim stands behind representing her divinity. The standing sculpture has a wonderful dark malachite patina.
