White Tara is seated in the vajra position, doing the gesture of charity with her right hand and the gesture of discord with the other while holding the stem of a lotus flower.
She has a third eye and an effigy of a buddha (probably Amitabha) in her headdress. Her tall Indian-style chignon is topped with a lotus bud finial. She wears a low crown with five lotus buds linked with beading and adorned with rosettes and wavy ribbons. Her large earrings are typical of the period and area. The hair and facial features are painted with pigments.
There is an eye in the palm of each hand and on the sole of each feet. Her tight-fitting upper garment ends in a cascade of pleats across her chest.
