Peaceful Jambhala is seated on a lotus supported by (inverted?) ritual pots and diamond-shaped columns, his right foot placed on another such pot. He holds a citrus fruit in his right hand and a mongoose disgorging jewels in the other and is adorned with a garland of pots, snakes, princely jewellery and matching tiara, a jewel finial on his pile of matted hair. The sash across his chest and his long dhoti are decorated with a stippled lotus motif.
On rare occasions he holds a gem-shaped fruit but this one appears holds a gem on a lotus that matches the finial on his Pala-style chignon. His right foot is placed on a ritual pot (kalash).
This Jambhala, adorned with princely jewellery and a garland of beads and pots, is seated on a cushion decorated with an incised pattern, atop a singular lotus seat with two layers of petals going downwards and lotus buds going around the base, one of them supporting the kalash.
Quite a different style, with a ritual pot on each side of the lotus seat, a rosary (of pots) in his left hand and his jewel-spitting mongoose tucked under his left arm. The stone-inlaid object between his right arm and his chest is probably a vase (see other example below).
We have seen a few other sculptures including a kalash in the crook of his right arm.
Yellow Jambhala featured as a young yaksha seated on a lotus atop a plinth with ritual pots at the front and another above, adorned with floral accessories, holding the usual citron and mongoose.
Another example with a rosary of pots in his left hand and a garland around his neck. Presumably the mongoose is tucked under his left arm and he has a pot of gems under his right arm.
A rotund yaskha adorned with a celestial scarf forming a halo behind his head, a garland of pots and stone-inlaid accessories (most gems missing). His mongoose, which he holds by the neck, disgorges ‘raining jewels’ onto the base.
Chinese-style work often depict him as an older character, with bushy eyebrows, a moustache and beard. The above wears a singular crown with jewels, a scarf or shawl, princely jewellery and a long lower garment. His mongoose vomits snail-like jewels that cover the entire surface of the lotus seat and his right foot is placed on a conch atop a large lotus flower stemming from the lower rim.
