God of Wealth Buddha, Jambhala / Kubera Statue, Tibet /Nepal
Tibetan name is Nam Thos Re. A very distinctive Buddha – right hand holding a conch shell and left – what should be a mongoose (that vomits jewels), there is, instead what looks like a bird. He is dressed in flowing garments and a snake (Naga) around his neck. I don’t see the representation of the dragons that usually are present around his throne. His seating position is the Rajalila Asana. Carved from boxwood and polished. Circa mid-1900’s. In perfect condition. For the Serious Collector.
SOLD! Many thanks M.H. !!
