A few years ago I became interested in the Native American Hopi people that now live on a reservation in northeastern Arizona. The word Hopi means “The Peaceful People.” From what I can tell from the books I have read, they had a beautiful culture, connected to the Spirit, and were skilled in agriculture. In these books I saw many different Kokopelli drawings that they created.

To me, the Kokopelli figure shows a fun loving side to these people, which I believe is a reflection of the Hopi way of life. The Hopi had a total reverence and respect for all things. They did not believe in war. They believed in honoring the precious, sacred essence contained in all things in all their actions. This was how they honored the Creator (God). They even had instructions from Maasaw, the Creator or Caretaker of Earth, that showed them the way to live at peace.

I created these paintings because I was inspired and wanted to pass on my own Kokopelli art to share the message of opening up the heart. Unlike the typical Kokopelli, these Kokopelli figures are together sharing in oneness. They are symbolically sharing in music, laughter, positive energy, and anything that frees us from what is rigid.

I created this painting a few years ago. It was a gift to a very dear friend of mine. I was inspired by the native Hopi Kokopelli figure. The Kokopelli represents fertility and the ushering in of spring. It is said that the Kokopelli carries unborn children on his back and distributes them to women. 🙂 The Kokopelli also represents the spirit of music and the laughter that opens us up and frees us from rigid preconception. In this painting I decided to convey different Kokopelli figures, colorfully coming together and sharing their spirit and joy.
