This coloured print shows the Green Tara surrounded by the eight forms of her that protect against the eight perils or eight dangers. They all have one face and two hands. She sits in the half cross-legged posture with her right leg extended. She grants refuge with her right hand and holds the stem of an utpala-lotus in her left that blossoms near her ear. An unidentified wrathful deity is in the central position of the upper register, while Marichi is depicted in the lower register. The print has Tibetan and Mongolian inscriptions.
