Human Kokopelli Dancer on Wood

This is a mixed media painting on wood...
14 x7 inches

Once I finished her, she reminded me of a kokopelli, so thats what I named her. :)

 
Ko-ko-pel-li (kô kô pel´ lê)
n. {der. Hopi “kokopilau” (koko = wood, pilau = hump)} the humpbacked Flute Player, mythical Hopi symbol of fertility, replenishment, music, dance, and mischief.

  3. Thanks Stacy! she was a sketch that I did years ago and brought to life on a whim... I'm glad I did, she makes me smile. :) And those are my favorite colors... shhh, dont tell anyone. :)

    Hi Diandra!
    I'm glad you like my art enough to purchase a painting! :) After the art show, I'll be posting what remains in the etsy shop... that will be in October. I'm sure you will pick a painting that will sing sweetly to the bf. ;)
