CI550  Known as a fertility god, prankster, healer and story teller, Kokopelli has been a source of wonder throughout the country for centuries. Kokopelli embodies the true American Southwest, and dates back over 3,000 years ago.  This is a 1/16" steel unfinished metal cut out 6"W X 11"H X 1/16" will have some slag, rust and finish will vary due to metal surface. 

 Kokopelli The Petroglyph

There is a lot of art depicting the character we call Kokopelli, and it can be found as far north as the Canadian Rockies, as far east as Oklahoma, and as far west as California. Though the figure became popular throughout a large chunk of North America, Kokopelli’s origin point is the Four Corners region of the American Southwest (where current-day Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico meet). About 1300 years ago (or earlier, some scholars say he first appeared in the year 200 CE!) a group of Native Americans started making these pictures of what we today think of as a slightly bent over flute playing man, but even that description is argued about.
