    I bought these at online auction. the first photo was auction photo. Next two I took after dusting and oiling (tiny olive oil). My Buddha head will arrive in 2-4 days! the first one is 13" tall and Buddha is 8" tall. Neither one has any markings on them but I fell in love with them!! Anybody know the name of the Lady Goddess? Please let me know! thanks

      Tibetan, Nepalese, goddess of Compassion: Tara, Drolma, Dolma.
      Female Bodhisattva.Tantric meditation deity.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tara_(Buddhism)
      She's holding, contemplating the lotus: night/day, female principle, creation.
      Love the pitch of those hips!

      The chignon on the head of the Buddha is important as are the placement of the 'eyes' of his hairdo.

      Her name is Wenshu Manjushri Bodhisattva. Most of the time she is God and sometimes appears as Goddess.
