About the Art

Legend says that Arya Tara was formed by the teardrop of Avalokiteshvara. The Green Tara is the personification of Mother Earth and regarded as humanity’s Great Mother. She is always available for those who call her name in despair. She protects and overcomes problems for all. This is why her right leg is somewhat outward, so she doesn't waste time reaching the vulnerable. Green Tara is one of the most popular Tara among 21 different forms.
