Masterpieces of the East: The Tara Statue.

Picture of Masterpieces of the East: The Tara Statue.
It was created some 1,200 years ago in Sri Lanka. The goddess Tara is made of solid gilded bronze and is a figure of exceptional beauty. At one point it is thought that her eyes and elaborately arranged hair were inlaid with precious stones. This DVD examines her origins and describes how such a masterpiece was crafted, her original divine function and her identity today as a cultural icon in a world museum.
