Good Fortune, The Highlands Ceramic Figurine

Wearing the warm clothing of Puno, this charming young man is actually an ekeko, a traditional Andean character said to bring happiness, love and prosperity. Originally, an ancient Quechua fertility god and domestic deity, the ekeko was an effigy given to a woman in an ancient legend of unrequited love. This modern ceramic version by Guillermo and Eduardo carries symbols of abundance and enjoyment, including bags of money, a lucky rabbit, tools, musical instruments and a deck of cards.Dimension - 4.9" H x 3.5" W x 3" DWeight - 0.42Color - MulticolorHand-crafted item -- color, size and/or motif may vary slightlyAndes
