See this work from the Cleveland Museum of Art's collection currently on view at the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico (9/1/2014 – 11/17/2014)! Female Torso (Tara), 1000s. Eastern India , Pala period, 11th century.
This palm leaf manuscript illustration was done in the 12th century at one of the great monastic centers in North India. This Green Tara, shown bestowing boons, is only 2 ¼ inches tall. It is amazing how the artist has managed to subtly depict this dynamic figure in great detail. Such imagery went on to have a great impact on the emerging painting traditions of Tibet.
