Resting Kuber Holding Bowl of Coins

Resting Kuber Holding Bowl of Coins

$68.00
Here the Lord of Wealth, Kuber, is taking rest holding a bowl of coins. He is the Lord of wealth and the god-king of the Yakshas. He is regarded as the regent of the North (Dik-pala), and a protector of the world (Lokapala). Kuber is the overlord of numerous semi-divine species and the owner of the treasures of the world. Kuber is often depicted with a plump body, adorned with jewels, and carrying a money-pot and a club. The scriptures describe that Kubera once ruled Lanka, but was overthrown by his demon stepbrother Ravana, later settling in the city of Alaka in the Himalayas. He is described as having three legs, only eight teeth, one eye, and being adorned with jewels. While Kubera still enjoys prayers as the god of wealth, his role is largely taken by the god of wisdom, fortune and obstacle-removal, Lord Ganesha, with whom he is generally associated. In the Vishnudharmottara Purana, Kubera is described as the embodiment of both Artha ("wealth, prosperity, glory") and Arthashastras, the treatises related to it—and his iconography mirrors it.
