A spectacular piece featuring the Tibetan "Bodhisattva with Thousand Hands". The Tara is also called the Goddess of Compassion. She is widely believed to come to aid a person's difficulties and grant one's wishes. The multi-faced and multi-armed Tara is the most powerful as she is able to assist in many areas at once. The craftsmanship is superb on this piece. The faces are refined, the arms graceful, and hands delicate and realistic. Tara's robe is decorated with elaborate flowers. Her crowns are regal. A rare, splendid piece.
