Antique Java Style Majapahit Seated Bronze Devi Tara Statue - Protector & Preserver - 26cm/10"
Measurements Height 26cm/10"
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 Tara is seated in the vajra position with her right leg is panhandle. Her right foot extends below the table that she is sat upon.
As hopefully our images illustrate this most unusual Tara is sat with his right leg extended. Sat over the edge of the table. She cannot simply sit on a flat surface. The sculpture needs a flat surface with edge to sit correctly. The right leg hanging over the edge. A shelf or similar would be ideal.
In her left hand the stem of a lotus flower is held, which extends above her shoulder. The lotus flower represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all. She wears a richly bejewelled dhotis and upavitas.
Tara also holds her male beads and her hand in a gesture of teaching.
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.
