Painted by hand in warm, happy colors, Kokopelli dances and plays a song for the sun. A prehistoric image, this deity is usually depicted with a humped back, playing a flute. Legends suggest Kokopelli was a Toltec trader who traveled from central Mexico to the southwestern deserts and mountains of the U.S.; there he is featured in the form of rock art dating back thousands of years. J. Blas depicts him along with desert lizards on a handsome candleholder. It can be mounted on the wall or placed on a table.
