Paula says - "This gorgeous kokopelli has a vertical pin, so you can hang it on a chain to use as a pendant.
"Incredible detail in a substantial, well-made pin. Absolutely beautiful inlay stone work. A real treasure."
The kokopelli, flute player, often associated with the Hopi Flute Clan is the symbol of happiness, joy and fertility.
Usually depicted as a non-gender figure, it was traditionally a male figure, often well endowed until the missionaries discouraged such depiction !
Kokopelli talks to the wind and the sky. His flute can be heard in the spring breeze, bringing warmth after the winter cold. He is the symbolic seed bringer and water sprinkler. His religious or supernatural power for fertility is meant to invoke rain as well as impregnate women both physically and mentally.
The kokopelli image is found from Casa Grande, Mexico to the Hopi and Rio Grande Pueblos and then westward to the Californian deserts in prehistoric rock, effigy figures, pottery, and on kiva walls.
