Arte Himalayana

An important gilt bronze statue depicting White Tara Nepal, 15th century or later

This important bronze fusion statue shows many gilt remains. It probably depicts White Tara, Sita Tara (Sgrol-Dkar) in the typical style of Malla period. The imposing figure wears exquisitely decorated bracelets, necklaces and crowns. She sits in paryanka position, she has the third eye and she also has four lotus on the palm of her hands and feet. Behind her left arm there is a niche that probably should have held a lotus with its steam, which unfortunately was lost. And that's precisely for this detail that this statue almost certainly portrays White Tara, because many other similar figures, but without the rear niche, have been identified as the transcendent Buddha Amoghasiddhi (Don-yod.grub-pa). For a similar object, check out the one sold by Christie's in 2013 (Sale 2687, lot 404).
