Details

J. Blas creates the illusion of a cave art painting featuring the mythical Kokopelli playing his flute. Surrounded by florid suns and curious lizards, Kokopelli travels far and wide playing melodious tunes inviting all to dance. Blas crafts and paints the iron candleholder by hand with extraordinary artistry.

Kokopelli dates back to pre-historic times; regarded as a deity, he is usually depicted with a humped back, playing a flute. Ancient legends suggest Kokopelli was a Toltec trader who traveled from central Mexico to the United States' southwestern deserts and mountains, where he is featured in the form of rock art dating thousands of years. Kokopelli played his flute to announce his arrival and according to Pueblo legends, he carried seeds, babies and blankets in his hump which he offered to the maidens he seduced.

To the Hopi, Kokopelli plays his flute to draw heat from the Earth and thus make the seeds grow. His name derives from Koko ("wood") and pilau ("hump"). Kokopelli is believed to be present whenever life comes forth from seed – plant or animal.

Love your work!

Took a peek before sending off an iron wall sculpture candleholder as a gift. Beautiful color and form, and ultralight, hanging from one centered loop. A real work of art!
