Here you can see finest statue of Black Jambhala aka Dzambhala the God of Wealth made in Kham, small size — 12.5 cm, fine carving.
He has one head and two arms, the right hand holds the top of a skull in front of his chest, and the left hand holds a mongoose. His head is adorned with the crown of five skulls in the shape of the five-Buddha crown; around his neck is a string of 50 pray beads made of human skulls. He is dressed in tiger's skin, with five-color snakes as bracelets on hands, feet and neck, he shows anger on his black face. In a standing position, he tramples the demon of poverty.
Black Jambhala (also known as Dzambhala, Dzambala, Zambala or Jambala) is the God of Wealth and appropriately a member of the Jewel (Ratna) Family. Jambhala is also believed to be an emanation of Avalokitesvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.
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 substances.
Important remark on color perception!!!
Dear buyers, to avoid any inconvenience you need to understand this information about color perception.
Color perception depends on the light conditions. All the pictures in our shop were taken under three professional light spots with color temperature 5100-5500K. It doesn't mean we publish not realistic pictures. It means the powerful source of light can penetrate through upper film of black patina, and the color appear more "milk chocolate" than "dark chocolate".
But, as one our buyer noticed, under average room conditions it will rather look as "dark chocolate".
To make this fact more clear we took two pictures without professional sources of light. Please feel the difference between these two pictures: one was taken on open sunshine light with color temperature 5050K. Another shoot was made in the room with electric light, what color temperature is 3050K.
Here is a question: what is more realistic?
