Our Dolma sculpture (a.k.a. Green Tara) is the most popular embodiment of the 21 Taras. Additionally, her color is green which symbolizes speed. Dolma will quickly respond in order to relieve the suffering of sentient life. This is why her right leg in panhandle position instead of full lotus pose. Dolma wishes for followers to be free of dogmatism and she is an ardent feminist. Indeed, she has vowed to remain a bodhisattva until there are more female Buddhas.
Our Dolma sculpture is suited for all devotees. Indeed, her attributes are universal and she wishes to relieve the suffering of all sentient life. She provides devotees protection from fear and the eight obscurations.
Dolma Sculpture Features
This Dolma sculpture is adorned with the crown and jewels of a bodhisattva. The crown and necklace are embedded with lovely turquoise and red stones. Turquoise is a combination of blue and green which symbolizes her dedication to the Buddhas and readiness to act. Our artisan in Nepal used the lost wax sculpting method to finish the sculpture with fine detail. Additionally, the statue was hand face painted by one of the best face painters in Nepal.
Our Dolma sculpture is displaying both the Varada and the Abhaya mudra. These two Buddhist mudras represent gift giving and also fearlessness. Additionally, she is shown here with 2 lotus flowers that blossom over her shoulders. The lotus is a symbol for devotees to strive for enlightenment.
