We are pleased to add a statuette of a Kokopelli to our popular Kokopelli line.
A Hopi word vaguely meaning rough or roughly wooden-backed. Most of today's depictions of the Kokopelli are derived from ancient Anasazi rock drawings.
The Kokopelli has become the true embodiment of the American Southwest. Although the true origins or meanings of the Kokopelli is un- known, Petroglyphs depicting the Kokopelli have been found throughout the Southwest dating back 3000 years. There are many myths of the Kokopelli. They are usually depicted as hunchbacked, dancing, flute playing characters. They are known as fertility gods, pranksters, healers, and storytellers. Legend has it that the flute playing announces the changing of winter into spring. It is believed that the Kokopelli's flute playing can often be heard in the Spring breeze.
The Kokopelli measures approximately 12 1/2 inches in height by 8 inches in width but can be custom ordered to the size you desire, contact us for pricing on larger sizes. This piece is cut from 12 gauge hot rolled steel and hand painted with acrylic paint then finished with an automotive grade clear coat. The clear coat is UV protected.
