Standing on a tall lotus base with apple-like petals, Tara does the refuge-bestowing gesture with her left hand while holding the stem of a lotus, her right hand displaying supreme generosity. Her face is painted with cold gold, the hair is dyed with blue pigment. She wears a garland and a diaphanous sash across her chest and two see-through lower garments, held in place with a heavy belt decorated with pendants.
This Pala-style sculpture depicts her on a single lotus over a stepped tortoise-base typical of Northeast India, wearing a long stripy garment with a stippled floral motif. Her low tiara with large bows reveals an exaggeratedly tall chignon with showy ornaments.
There is a round object in the palm of her right hand, possibly a large gem.
There are over twenty different forms of Tara and most of them are usually seated but they may be standing.
