Tara 1100-1200 Bihar, North-East India, Basalt. The name Tara means 'saviouress'. She is a goddess widely worshipped for her protective powers and compassionate nature. Here she holds a lotus in one hand and makes the gesture of granting wishes with the other. The architectural composition, with Tara standing against an elaborate throne back, suggests that the relief was a miniature shrine.
