Our beautiful Green Tara statue was crafted with intricate detail by our Nepali master craftsman. For many centuries the artisans of Nepal worked tirelessly to perfect the lost wax sculpting method. As a result, the fine detail is displayed in her Bodhisattva crown and jewels. Additionally, our artisans are experts at face painting which provides a elegant suspended animation to the sculpture. It is these characteristics that make our Nepali artisans the preferred source for Buddha statues of the Tibetan monasteries.
Special Symbolism of Green Tara
This Green Tara statue is a symbol of the compassion of Avalokitesvara. This is because devotees believe she was born from the teardrops that fell from his eyes. Long ago, Avalokitesvara’s teardrops fell from his eyes and filled a great lake on the Tibetan plateau. As a result, Green Tara was born from a lotus flower that blossomed on the lake of tears. Therefore, Green Tara is always ready to spring forth to assist sentient life and relieve suffering. Additionally, the color green is the symbol of Spring and liveliness. She encourages devotees to be free of dogmatism and to try new things.
The Green Tara statue includes two lotus flowers that grow over her shoulders. This induces her devotees to diligently strive to reach the rewards of enlightenment. Our Green Tara statues were carved by the best craftsmen in the world. As a result, when you purchase one of our Green Tara sculptures you can rest assured you have procured a world class sculpture.
