There is little to equal the radiant Devi Tara. Her beauty is ethereal; Her wisdom, all-encompassing. Queen of Mount Potala and fairer than the paralokiya lotuses and the moons thereof, She is revered by Buddhists as the quintessential Mother. The mask of Tara that you see on this page captures the grace of Her mukhamadala (countenance) to perfection.
In fact it is as if She is caught in the midst of profound samadhi (yogic contemplation). As the rare female Bodhisattva, She is depicted wearing a five-spired crown on Her head and a necklace of divinely glittering jewels about Her neck. Also, in keeping with the traditional iconography of Buddhsit deities, from Her karna (ears) cascade kundalas (danglers) so substantial that they graze the undulation of Her clavicles. This is a sign of wisdom; nay, omniscience. In the mask composition that you see on this page, these aspects of the Devi have been executed with perfect symmetry and unflinching attention to detail.
Such a work of art would be a valuable addition to the home of the truly devoted. You may consecrate it and hang it up on the wall at your altar or, given how fine a sculpture this is, use it as a visualisation aid to enrich your personal sadhana. A repository of otherworldly significance, even a lover of eastern art and aesthetics would benefit from this handpicked piece of home decor.
How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?
Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.
Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.
In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth.
