White Tara holds the stems of lotuses, one of them in full bloom. She is dressed in a striped dhoti and adorned with a five-leaf crown and heavy jewellery.
She normally holds her right hand palm out, to display the gesture of supreme generosity.
On this example, the left hand does refuge-bestowing gesture. She is adorned with a crown, belt and jewellery richly inlaid with turquoise, lapis lazuli and coral, even the rectangular urna on her forehead is inlaid with turquoise. Her hair is dyed with lapis lazuli powder.
