Yakshini

Yakshinis, or Yakshis, are female demons, mythical beings of Hindu and Buddhist mythology.

Yakshinis are the female counterparts of the male Yakshas, and they are attendees of Kubera, the Hindu god of wealth who rules in the mythical Himalayan kingdom of Alaka.

Yakshinis are often depicted as beautiful and voluptuous, with a chauri (fly-whisk) in their right hand, with fleshy cheeks, wide hips, narrow waists, broad shoulders, knotted hair and exaggerated, spherical breasts.
