Unknown female bodhisattva (possibly Tara or Prajnaparamita...) with four arms, a stone statue with the distinctive pointed headdress, bracelets and necklace. In her two upraised hands she holds Shiva symbols (mala beads, fly swatters) and with her hands in her lap she makes a gesture of Shiva linga (male-female union).
