Yellow Jambhala, peaceful and smiling, seated on a lotus pedestal with his right foot on a water pot (kalash), holding a citron fruit and a minute mongoose, adorned with floral jewellery and wearing a loin cloth decorated with incisions and a stippled pattern.
This rare stone example depicts him with an effigy of a buddha (Ratnasambhava) in his headdress.
This one has a foot on a lotus flower stemming from the lotus pedestal on which his mongoose is disgorging jewels.
Between the 14th and 16th century this peaceful aspect of Jambhala was occasionally depicted seated on a single or double lotus supported by a row of pots forming a pedestal, his right foot resting on a pot placed on a lotus attached to the base.
We have seen quite a few similar Pala-style images in previous posts. This one has a long garland of round gems around his neck and princely jewellery and crown. His mongoose is spitting jewels forming a loop.
