National Museum - New Delhi

Jambhala is the Buddhist god of wealth, equivalent of the Hindu god Kubera. He is seated on a double lotus pedestal with his right leg resting on a small kalasa symbolizing nidhi or wealth, over which he presides. His left leg is folded and rests on the pedestal. In his right hand he is holding citrus fruit, and with his left hand he is squeezing the neck of a nakula or a mongoose, to emit jewels, seen here as a string of flowers.
