I purchased this beautiful figurine, but actually I have no idea what exactly it represents. Maybe somebody can tell me more about the symbolism in it (including the mudra)?

    The iconography — particularly the head-piece and dual lotus flowers — makes me think this is one of the manifestations of Tara (a Tibetan Buddha and a Mahayana bodhisattva). But I've never seen a Tara with crossed hands; the ubiquitous Green Tara is presented with open hands (left raised, right lowered). – Ted Wrigley May 12 at 14:48
