Description Framed Tibetan painted thangka likely dated to 19th century. The piece depicts a central Lokapala named Vaisravana, one of the four Heavenly Kings. In Tibetan Buddhism, he is also known as Jambhala, or "god of wealth" among the worshipers. The central figure is a White Jambhala riding a snow lion. In his left hand, he holds a mongoose which spits out precious diamonds and ornaments. On his right hand, he holds a banner that symbolizes the wealth. White Jambhala is the manifestation of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva born out of his right eye. Surrounding him, there are eight deities on their rides, likely representing the eight guardians of the directions.
The thangka was nicely presented in a gilt frame with gold trim mat. The size of the image is 16"x 22". With frame is 23" x 29".
