Goddess Tara - Mahavidya

Tara is one of the Devis of the Mahavidya worship

A cryptic Tara holding her customary lotus and scissors presses the body of Shiva under her foot. Sailing ships, attendants and perhaps Lord Rama surround her.

The stone or metal Deity images are not mere symbols of the Gods; they are the form through which their love, power and blessings flood forth into this world.
