Description

Kubera is regarded as the god of wealth and ruler of the northern quadrant of the universe. One of his attributes is a cup for holding liquor, of which he is very fond. He can also be identified by his distinctive posture, in which he sits on his haunches upon a low seat. His potbelly manifests his well-being and good fortune.
