Extremely Rich Dwarf God

A hideous dwarf dripping with jewels, he has three legs but only eight teeth. Still, we don’t think being beautiful has ever been high on any tycoon’s agenda.

Taking another look, we notice he has only got one eye. Not to mention a rather strange moustache.

But it’s the trappings of success that count. Only the richest of rich Gods can afford a flying sky chariot which is large enough to contain a whole city. This amazing vehicle, which is called Pushpaka, was eventually stolen by Ravana, which just shows even rich deities can be victims of car crime.

Kubera doesn’t seem to care. He is too busy helping the rich get richer. Definitely one of the 1%.
