This palm leaf manuscript illustration was done in the 12th century at one of the great monastic centers in North India.  This Green Tara, shown bestowing boons, is only 2 ¼ inches tall.  It is amazing how the artist has managed to subtly depict this dynamic figure in great detail.  Such imagery went on to have a great impact on the emerging painting traditions of Tibet.
