Jambhala also known as Viasravana to the Hindu and Buddhist faiths. The God of
Wealth graciously realized in Sino Tibetian style. His right foot rests on a conch
shell supported by a lotus, while right hand holds a citron fruit; said to be
the origin of his Buddhist name (Jambhara = lemon). His left hand holds a mongoose
vomiting white jewels, piled neatly in a stack. The mongoose is also the enemy
of the snake, such as the one hanging from his neck, a symbol of greed and hatred.
It is said that by providing wealth, he allows freedom so that one may focus on
a path of spirituality. A beautiful piece in excellent condition.
