Large Black Tara Statue – Cast Bronze, For Power & Protection
A wonderful cast bronze covers the black Tara statue with golden accents. This statue is naturally heavy and large in size, but serene and beautifully sculptured. The cast bronze contributes to its qualities of being a perfect member of the altar or deity in the living room. Casting is carefully prepared by pouring a liquid metal into an originally-carved from mold. The metal is coated with black paint while its edging is well-polished to bring out the golden details. Both hands are placed in mudra gestures. The right hand represents the Gyan or air mudra whereas the left hand shows the Surya/Agni (known as the fire mudra). These mudras balance the each element that they represent.

Homes in Southeast Asian countries patronize Deity statues wherein residents and visitors leave their offerings towards the household shrines. In western homes, lots of households adopt the idea of putting lights and flowers around statues.
