Tara is believed by practitioners to bring good to all beings and is known as the Mother of all Buddhas. Particularly, Green Tara is identified as the divinity of good fortune and prosperity, and is also looked upon as the religious companion of Amoghasiddhi and often holds his image in her headdress. She holds a half opened blue lotus in her left hand, and molds the mudra of the Three Jewels with her thumb touching the ring finger and her other fingers extended. She is green in color and is dressed as a Bodhisattva. Her right leg rests on a blue lotus. Sometimes she is represented with her 21 Tara forms surrounding her in a rainbow. Her halo, crown, and jewelry were painted in pure gold, along with outlines and other details. Mineral pigments and natural dyes are used to paint this Tara.
