Mythological figures often represented visually in a pair, the yaksha and yakshi are found across early Buddhist, Jain and Hindu art. Yakshas are male figures, and yakshis are their female counterparts.
They were believed to be spirits that inhabited trees, mountains, rock mounds, rivers, and oceans.
The yakshas were generally benevolent to humans and were said to be the custodians of treasures hidden in the earth and in the roots of trees. The female yaksha, or yakshi, was often depicted as a heavily jeweled fertility figure.
