Religious Figure / Jambhala Marpo



A wooden figure of Jambhala Marpo, of the Traba Ngonshe Tradition. He is carved from a dark wood, while the wrapped cloth around his waist is decorated with dots and flowers in gold. He is carved with six arms, four legs and three heads. He holds a flaming jewel in his raised right and and a bowl of jewels in his left. His lowered hands each holds a jewel spitting mongoose, both his extended arms are missing, removed at the joint. A small cavity in the figure's back would have held a charm, but this is now empty.
