This finely carved statue of Jambhala (also known as Dzambhala), the God of Wealth, is made in Kham province (Eastern Tibet). Jambhala (also known as Dzambhala, Dzambala, Zambala or Jambala) is the God of Wealth and appropriately a member of the Jewel (Ratna) Family. In Hindu mythology, Jambhala is known as Kubera. Jambhala is also believed to be an emanation of Avalokitesvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.
Unlike most statues made for the tourists, all the details of this statue — such as the hands, face, etc — are made very carefully and in the details.
Each statue has some space inside to be filled by traditional way. This hole is closed by cover.
