The Kokopelli - A 1930's term given to one of the most recognized images found in historic cultural heritage sites in the southwest:
More accurately named “The Fluteplayer” is found in rock art petroglyphs (carved) and pictographs (painted or dyed) from somewhere around 100 AD to 1400 AD. The classic design includes a hump, a phallus, and a flute. Occasionally the legs appear deformed, sometimes shown with animals, and even associated with rain making. The Fluteplayer is thought to be identified, or translated today, as a minstrel, hunter, bringer of rain, and a fertility figure (but no one really knows).
The image on our package was photographed approximately in 2010 by Dan & Eileen during a hike in the Red Rock Secret Canyon Wilderness. During an off-trail segment, at an undisclosed heritage site rich in pictographs, our guide led us to this rather famous image of the reclining fluteplayer (notice the rain falling of it’s back).
