Tara, White (Tibetan: drol ma, kar mo. English: the White Saviouress): peaceful in appearance, with one face and two hands, surrounded by eight Taras and eight vignettes illustrating the overcoming of the eight fears.
"...Holy White Tara, with one face and two hands, the right in [the gesture of] supreme generosity, the left giving refuge, holding an utpala [flower]. Peaceful, smiling, with a moon as a backrest, adorned with silks and jewel ornaments..."
(Dzongsar Kyentse Chokyi Lodro, 1893-1959).
