    Description

    Kubera is one of the most popular deities of Nepalese Buddhists. He is the bestower of wealth and guardian of the northern direction. In many Tibetan and Nepalese images such as this one, the deity is shown as a plump figure wearing a crown, ribbons and jewelry, sitting on a lion and holding a mongoose, representing his victory over the naga (snake deities), who symbolize greed. As God of Wealth, Kubera squeezes the mongoose and causes the creature to spew out jewels.
