This beautiful piece was handcrafted by J. Blas in Mexico. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase. Swaying and dancing to a hypnotic tune, Kokopelli abandons himself to the rhythms of his music. His long hair blows in the breeze as he pipes a plaintive melody on his flute. J. Blas sculpts the legendary deity in elaborate detail. He first cuts metal sheets and hammers them into three-dimensional shape. Welded together, they are adorned with airy cut-out work and finished with lead-free paint. To the Hopi, Kokopelli plays his flute to draw heat from the Earth and thus make the seeds grow. His name derives from Koko (''wood'') and pilau (''hump''). Kokopelli is believed to be present whenever life comes forth from seed – plant or animal.
