The humpbacked flute player is a deity rooted deep in Anasazi traditions and is still rampant in the pantheons of many pueblo peoples. To the Hopi he is Kokopelli, influential in fertility and abundance, whether it be in the hunt, the fields, or human reproduction. His presence in the Colorado Plateau country is natural, for the region was a place of birth for the Anasazi and other southwest peoples. This figure, along with others on Rock Art Pottery, is representative of the symbols used by the Anasazi (The Ancient Ones). NOT GLAZED INSIDE
