The idea was to have a traditional piece of art near the entrance to have positive vibes in the house.

The colorful place mat underneath the Tara and the tiny spotlight above accentuate the little white niche. 

I had a tough choice choosing an artifact for this area as I wanted it to be rich and exquisite and it either had to be one of Buddha or of Lord Ganpati. But when I looked at the Tara, I instantly realized that it was carved out especially for that niche. Tara in my home evokes tradition in a contemporary setting while also distinguishing it from the more common choices.
