Wealth rattle from the Bactrian Empire Period of ancient India. The terra cotta rattle is an effigy of Kubera, the wealth and prosperity god. The hollow interior had magical charms placed inside, and when shaken, summoned Kubera. Some sources say that priests shook the rattle over patrons to bestow wealth upon them during festivals. The rattle pictured above, was found near Chandraketugarh.
