  • Antique Java Style Majapahit Seated Bronze Devi Tara Statue - Protector & Preserver - 15cm/6"

    Measurements Height 15cm/6"

    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.

    Tara holds her right hand in the dharmachakra mudra. In sanskrit dharmachakra means the 'Wheel of Dharma'. This mudra symbolises one of the most important moments in the life of Buddha, the occasion when he preached to his companions the first sermon after his Enlightenment in the Deer Park at Sarnath. It therefore denotes the setting into motion of the Wheel of the teaching of the Dharma. In this mudra the thumb and index finger touch at their tips to form a circle. This circle represents the Wheel of Dharma, or in metaphysical terms, the union of method and wisdom. This symbolises generosity.

    In her left hand she holds the stem and buds of a lotus flower, extending above her shoulder. She wear a richly bejewelled dhotis and upavitas. 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 beaded aureole stands behind representing her divinity.

    The standing sculpture has a wonderful green malachite patina.

Very Pleased to report Reclining Ganesha has just arrived in Omaha this morning, unscathed and released from captivity! Even though I knew its dimensions, I still stood in awe as I unwrapped the piece and saw the details emerging. It really has an aura, a presence about it........more powerful than I expected, and I had very high expectations! I am very appreciative and honored to become Ganesha's new keeper! Thank You for allowing this to happen!
