Choccie God of Merchants and Selling

Also one of the ALPHABET-GODS known as God M. M is for Merchants.

EK-CHUAH started off as a God of Conflict, which could explain a lot about door-to-door vendors and telesales tactics. He has black-rimmed eyes and a large droopy lip... or is it a nose? That would explain why his name sounds like a sneeze. EK-CHUAH! Either way, he has a real nose for business.

He is usually depicted as a dark brown or black deity, appropriately enough as he's the Patron of the Cacao Bean. Yes, EK-CHUAH is a God of Chocolate. Those delicious dark beans were once used as currency.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ek-chuah graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ek-chuah movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Ek-chuah statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ek-chuah. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
