Kokopelli

The earliest known petroglyph showing the KOKOPELLI dates to about A.D. 1000, by an Anasazi artist. There are many legends surrounding this character. One Kokopelli legend has it that he was a Mayan trader of goods, news and entertainment. As such, he could travel freely and unharmed from pueblo to pueblo playing his flute. The feathers which appear on his head were actually those of his pet Macaw bird, which traveled on his shoulder. Honored as a god because of his unusual appearance, he had the choice of women in each pueblo and was nicknamed “the god of fertility.”
