The two combined prints depict Tara of the Khadira Forest leading the twenty-one Taras (above) and the Green Tara (below). Tara of the Khadira Forest placed in the middle of the upper print is surrounded by twenty-one Taras. She is furthermore accompanied by her two attendants Marichi and Ekajata who can be seen beneath her lotus. Buddha Shakyamuni is found directly above the Tara of the Khadira Forest.
