Artwork Description

One of the most popular and complex deities in the Buddhist tradition, Tara is a savior goddess who assumes many forms and incarnations that shift and overlap, and are assimilated into different cultures. Her name can translate to "Star" or "She Who Brings Us To The Other Shore." Tara is the goddess who navigates through the waters between darkness and light. She helps mortals obtain enlightenment and her strong, compassionate presence is often called upon during times of distress and endangerment.

From the book Celestial Goddesses.

Your work is...beautiful is an enormous understatement. I like this especially, because the background is spectacular.

Art at its best.
