With a variety of luxurious items, such as a house, a sports car, and a sack of money tied around his neck, Ekeko, the Tiwanakan god of abundance, is depicted here in this charming ceramic figurine. Maribel Posso Olivares paints the sculpture by hand with floral motifs against a red body, outfitting the sculpture with a multicolored wool chullo hat that reads "Peru."
