Kokopelli

"Kokopelli" is a fertility god venerated by some Southwestern American Indian cultures. He is usually depicted as a flute player and believed to preside over childbirth and agriculture. I don't yet know how I will use this 14"x 10" block, but I've wanted to make it for a long time. It's made of wool-felt appliqued onto muslin. All suggestions welcome!

He is so cute! My daughter was putting a Kokopelli figurine in things that were going to Goodwill and I had to rescue him. I cannot let any Indian go to the unknown. For me, I'd probably turn him into wall art.

I agree with Carol - make it into a wall art piece.

I have always loved Kokopelli. I think he could bring good fortune to your house if you turned him into wall art.

Isn't it great when you finally make something you have been wanting to make for a long time? I'm with the majority - a wall hanging. Awesome.
