Revered for her capacity to perceive the suffering of her faithful and to respond compassionately, Tara is here endowed with seven eyes, a third eye on the forehead and on each palm and sole. They have been highlighted by the artist by employing silver and copper inlay. These details as well as the incised floral patterns are superbly executed. A light metal alloy was chosen likely to assimilate the light body color of the 'White Tara'.
For a similar use of inlay, compare with a figure of Akshobya in the Berti Aschmann Collection at the Museum Rietberg Zurich, see H. Uhlig, On the Path to Enlightenment, 1995, p. 70f.
