Traditional art usually paints him as having a yellow face. Zoom in on his right hand to see him carrying a citron fruit, one of the main symbols that separate him from his Indian counterpart Kubera, who usually holds a parasol. The citron comes from the Jambhara tree, a tree whose names sound close with his other identity, Jambhala. On his left hand is a mongoose. This mongoose is a sign of Vaishravana’s success over the Nagas, or the snakes who guard wealth. The mongoose appears to the ejecting a jewel from its mouth, a powerful symbol of rejecting materialism and a showcase of generosity as a good way to about one’s spiritual journey. He is then known as a god of wealth that gives and blesses more because the act itself is freeing.
