Greetings Billy, A. Wheat and Carlos, Thanks for visiting and commenting.

Billy - I did find a description of what this deity was, but it wasn't this exact statue so I wasn't sure if it was a universal meaning.

A. Wheat - It was a beautiful statue. lots of work went into it.

Saludos Carlos, creo que tiene razón. Si usted acaba de conectar este cable de alimentación se le de vuelta en los negocios.

¡Salud!, Cheers,

Greetings Anna, Thanks for visiting and commenting. I had another comment about "Here's what is wrong". I think this may be the deity of the missing power cable for the computer or printer! Anyway, I am glad you like the picture and thank you so much for visiting.

Greetings A&K, Thanks for the visit and the comment. I like to think of the statue as the god of the missing power cable. When the computer doesn't work he holds out his hand with the power cable and says"Well, her's the problem....". Cheers, Rich
