Caduceus, God of Commerce Picture

This is Caduceus, a "random" god of commerce I drew up over the last weekend. Sorta inspired by the overwhelming value we place in commercialism and business in the modern/post-modern era. Not many folks pay any tribute to any "god" besides the Almighty Dollar. Mind ye, this drawing wasn't meant to be political or anything.

Aspects of Caduceus:
Positive- Wealth, Prosperity, Guile (fair trade)
Negative- Greed, Envy, Guile (deceit)

Symbolism (I tried to borrow a few traditional symbols and a few modern symbols for this):
The Bull (head and body)- Represents the term for a "bull market" which is when the American stock market is going up and doing well
Caduceus staff (upper left hand and this god's namesake)- Represents the Greek/Roman god Hermes/Mercury who carries a similar staff, Hermes/Mercury in addition to being the messenger of the Classic gods, was also considered the god of Commerce and Market
All Seeing Eye Pendent (sorry you can't see this one very well)- Represents the "All Seeing Eye" symbol which can be found on an American dollar bill
Coins and Jewelry- Pretty obvious, represents wealth in several forms
The Dagger (lower left hand)- Represents thievery, "back stabbing", or otherwise less "fairer" ways of acquiring wealth
"Change" Hand Sign (lower right hand)- I see this hand sign used a lot in portrayals of deities (among other uses), but I suppose this one could resemble the same hand sign you use in Japan when you want change at the register.
The Cloth- Err, I didn't really put any meaning to this initially, I suppose the small to large circles could represent the gain and loss of wealth (going up or down).
Posing- Caduceus stares at his hand full of coins (always "seeking" wealth)...the coins slipping through means "loss of wealth" or "you can have so much that you can't hold/keep it all"

Extra note: You commonly see the Rod/Staff of Caduceus used in medical symbolism. However, that's a bit inaccurate, it should be the Rod of Asclepius used for symbols of medicine (with is a staff with one snake instead of two, and no wings).

*Note: I'd like to remind visitors to this deviation that is a fictional "god" I randomly made with vague references to myth not an portrayal of a god/deity from real world mythology. :]*
