AP PHOTOS: Bolivians pick their Andean god of abundance

In this Feb. 3, 2018 photo, Hilarion Macias, dressed as “Ekeko,” the god of prosperity and the central figure of the Alasita Fair, holds fake money as he poses for a portrait in La Paz, Bolivia. Macias, 55, uses coca leaves to read people’s futures. “The Ekeko is a big tradition, representing our future and a cultural tradition from the times of the Incas,” he said. Macias competed in this year’s Ekeko costume competition. (AP Photo/Juan Karita)
