EKEKO

Inca Wealth God

Also known as Ekako, Ekhekho, Ekkekko, Eq’eq’o

Not the Peruvian God of Echoes

He is but a fat jolly dwarf with a rich chuckle.

He’s God of Wealth and Plenty, and carries a bottomless sack full of household goodies. If you are given even the merest pot or pan you should be most grateful because your whole life will be enriched.

According to ancient legend, if you place a tiny object on an Ekeko doll, you’ll receive what you wish for in the coming year. But if the object is removed, you’ll lose it all.
