The Kokopelli flute player is one of many ceremonial dolls used to teach young Hopi children about the Hopi culture and the various ceremonies that are a part of the Hopi life. This Kokopelli has Hopi designs that give reference to life giving rain from the cloud and rain designs to the different paths taken during our lives. The flute is decorated with the mountain design.
This Kokopelli has been carved from basswood and painted with acrylics and finished with an oil-based antique wash. It measures 1/2”d x 3 1/4”w x 6 1/2”h. The base was carved separately from basswood to resemble the rock cliffs from Arizona. The base is 7/8”d x 2 3/4”w x 3 3/4”l.
