After the 16th century, Yellow Jambhala sculptures made in Tibet are often in a mixed style or made to suit Chinese taste. This Jambhala is depicted with his mongoose but there are no jewels coming out of it mouth and he holds a long object topped with a head in his right hand instead of the standard egg-shaped citrus fruit or the triratna. He has a small Nepalese-style oval face, a tripartite chignon typical of Indian mahasiddhas, and wears a long lower garment and a thin celestial scarf with snake-like ends in the Chinese fashion. The double-lotus base, his crown and his jewellery are post-16th century.
Seated on Pala-style pedestal, his citrus fruit and mongoose in hand, Jambhala has a foot over a shell on a long-life vase and there is a triratna attached to the single-lotus base over the pedestal. He has strong facial features with thick eyebrows and a square jaw which give him the aspect of a warrior.
