This Tara, who is part of the 21 Tara's, is painted in the 'Surya Gupta'-lineage. Surya Gupta was a 9th century Kashmiri pandit (scholar) and, in this old Indian tradition, Tara is depicted with four arms. Two hands are raised above her head, in the mudras of Supreme Joy and holding two hooks. The right hand on Tara's knee is in the gesture of Supreme Generosity and the fourth hand holds a lotus with a Dharma book.
This Tara who is also known as 'Tara, the Victorious One', sits on a goose or a peahen and is said to protect from poisons and Nagas (snake-like creatures), as to snakes themselves, scorpions and other animals whose venom can harm or kill. Within the mind, this Tara protects from wrong views and from dullness of mind.
