This  beautiful carving of a Buddhist woman, Patacara, is carved from suar wood.   She is serene and has a feeling of inner strength and knowing.

Patacara's story began with passionate love and became one of great loss. She went out of her mind with grief, living on the street, mostly naked and ranting while people hurled stones at her. Upon meeting the Buddha, she prostrated at his feet in despair and describing her family tragedies. The Buddha talked with her, using Buddhist doctrines and Patacara immediately saw the nature of impermanence. She was transformed and committed her life to practice. The Buddha appointed her the foremost Keeper of the Vinaya, "Rules of Conduct" of the monastic life for the Nuns. Patacara reached the first stage of arayahood, those who have attained 'the fruits of the path'.
