White Tara I, 2011

Acrylic on paper

50.5 x 40 inches (frame)


White Tara is one of the most popular Buddhist deities because she is appealed to for healing and long-life. She is characterized by white skin and has seven eyes, three in her head, one in each of her palms, and one in each of the soles of her feet. She is seated in the meditation pose. Her right hand is open and outstretched in the gesture of giving; she holds a lotus in her left hand.
