Seated on a Pala-style lotus base, his right foot resting on a vase, Yellow Jambhala holds a citrus fruit in his right hand, his mongoose in the other, surrounded by lotuses, wearing a long dhoti, bulky jewellery, and Indian-style chignon topped with a finial and low tiara.
In most cases, the mongoose is spewing jewels. The above has a foot on a lotus flower attached to the base.
Many Yellow Jambhala sculptures are labelled ‘Kubera’, which is a generic name for a series of deities. The mongoose is common to several related deities but the citrus fruit is proper to the peaceful yellow form of Jambhala (who has a yellow body on paintings).
