This Green Tara is not green. She's gold from crown to lotus. Totally gilded except for the face, that's hand painted with 24k gold.
Green Tara embodies the feminine aspect of wisdom. Tara, whose name means “star” or “she who ferries across,” is a Bodhisattva of compassion. She is the protectoress from fear and mental blockages. Her right hand is extended in the giving mudra. Her left hand is held in the gesture of fearlessness to bestow protection. You can tell the difference between White and Green Taras by the position of their legs. White Tara is in full lotus position. Green Tara's right leg drops down a bit.
