In the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon, Tara is the most important of the female bodhisattvas. She is sometimes referred to as a female Buddha. Anyone can pray to her for help and guidance.
There are twenty-one forms of Tara. This sculpture is of Red Tara. Her appearance and pose is similar to that of Green Tara. Over her left shoulder she carries a bow, her 'weapon', which shoots arrows of flowers.
