Description
"Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha"
~Green Tara Mantra~
I prostrate to the Liberator, Mother of all the Victorious Ones

In this sculpture Tara is in her green form. In her left hand she hold a lotus, a symbol of the mind's purity. Her right hand is stretched outward in the varada mudra with her palm open facing downwards in a gesture of granting boons to her devotees. Her left hand is held up in the vitarka mudra of teaching.
Green tara is seated on a lotus base.  The base and Green Tara are cast separately so that they can be moved easily.  They fit together with Green Tara fitting snuggly into the base.  

Green and White Tara:  Green Tara is the more common goddess depicted in sculpture.  She is an active goddess who is represented as a young girl.  She is accociated with the Night. 
White Tara is the serene, motherly aspect of the Bodhistatva of Compassion and is associated with the Day.
The easy way to tell them apart in sculpture iconography is to look at how they are seated.  Green Tara is seated in the lalitasana with one leg stretched out usually resting on a lotus flower.  White Tara is seated in the full lotus position or the padmasana with the soles of both feet facing the sky.

About Buddha
"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change."
 ~ Buddha~
The Buddha, whose original name was Siddhartha Gautama, was the founder of Buddhism, the religion and the philosophical system that produced a great culture throughout much of southern and eastern Asia.  Buddha, meaning "awakened one" or "enlightened one" is a title not a name.  In Hindu Dogma, the Buddha is viewed as being the 9th avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu.
The Buddha was a son of the rulers Sakyas.  He was married at the age of 16 and lived in luxury and comfort sheltered from the harsh realities of life.  When he was 29 he realized that men are subject to old age, sickness and death.  He became aware of the suffering inherent in existence.  He resolved to give up princely life and become a wandering ascetic (samana) in search for the Truth.
With the two of samanas he attained mystical states of elevated consciousness but he failed to find the Truth.  He continued his search and was joined by five ascetics in a grove near Uruvela, where he practiced sever austerities and self-mortification for six years.  When he fainted away in weakness, he abandoned ascetic practices to seek his own path to Enlightenment.  Discarding the teachings of his contemporaries, through meditation he achieved Enlightenment, or ultimate understanding.  There after the Buddha instructed his followers in the dharma (truth) and the "Middle Way" a path between worldly life and extremes of self-denial. 
The essence of the Buddha's early preaching was said to be the four Noble truths: 1) life is fundamentally disappointment and suffering.  2) suffering is a result of one's desires for pleasure, power, and continued existence; 3) to stop disappointment and suffering on must stop desiring; and 4) the way to stop desiring and thus suffering is the Noble eight fold path - right views, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right awareness and right concentration.  The realization of the truth of anatman (no eternal self) was taught as essential for the indescribable state of release called nirvana.

Care

Brass statues from India do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

"You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup."

You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.  If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece.  You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

Indian brass's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The metal can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.
