  Description:

This offer is for an 18th century solid bronze statue of the Buddhist deity known as Tara. She stands over 12 inches in height without the stand, yet she weighs more than 17 (seventeen), pounds.

Before she was adopted by Buddhism, Tara was worshiped in Hinduism as a manifestation of the goddess Parvati. The feminine principle was not venerated in Buddhism until the fourth century CE, and Tara probably entered Buddhism around the sixth century CE.

I believe the item may be from Tibet. However, it was brought back from China in 1897 by a physician who was also a missionary. I know this to be factual based on the doctor's photographic diary that was sold at the same auction of his daughter's estate in Hallandale, Florida in 1980. One of the more interesting photos was of a 5 0r 6 story building that had an inscription below it describing it as a "Pawn Shop." Unfortunately, I was outbid on the photographs.

This Tara statue holds a lotus flower in her left hand which was cast separately and can be removed. The statue never had a base or stand but is set into a marble lamp base that will accompany the statue if buyer wishes.

CONDITION:

The statue has never been polished during the 30 years I've owned her. And, being wrapped in linens for most of those years, the patina remains virtually unchanged. There are some minor nicks and bruises but nothing to detract from it's value or aesthetic qualities.

U.S.BUYER PAYS $40.00 SHIPPING AND HANDLING WHICH INCLUDES INSURANCE AND DELIVERY CONFIRMATION. ALL OTHERS MUST CONTACT SELLER FOR SHIPPING COSTS.
