This Yellow Jambhala sculpture is the first and unique of its kind, crafted in 18-karat gold with miniature carving techniques. The piece with all its intricacy requires months to complete. The frame is inlaid with rubies and decorated with “ba bao” eight treasures amid cloud designs. The sculpture displays great beauty at a dainty 25mm in height, belying its stateliness and elegant stature. The luxuriously styled figure is shown adorned with elaborate jewelry including a jeweled crown, beaded necklaces, bracelets, anklets, armbands as well as a beaded waistband. Perfectly formed and superbly crafted, the present figure offers a rare opportunity for collectors.
