About the Art

Green Tara, a female Buddha, symbolizes compassion and wisdom. The artist, inspired by the lack of life-size statues in Nepali museums, aims to create one. The upcoming biennale offers a grand-scale representation of the deity, which holds significant importance in Buddhist worship as the bestower of life and protector. Shakya is excited about offering a tangible and immersive encounter with the sacred figure, aiming to awaken the Buddha nature and facilitate the fulfillment of wishes.
