 Swaying and dancing to a hypnotic tune, Kokopelli abandons himself to the rhythms of his music. His long hair blows in the breeze as he pipes a plaintive melody on his flute. J. Blas sculpts the legendary deity in elaborate detail. He first cuts metal sheets and hammers them into three-dimensional shape. Welded together, they are adorned with airy cut-out work and finished with lead-free paint.

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") andpilau ("hump"). Kokopelli is believed to be present whenever life comes forth from seed – plant or animal.

Story Behind The Art:

Hello. My name is J. Blas. From the time I was small I have enjoyed arts and crafts. I loved to dig and prepare clay to make my own pieces and from that time on I began to experiment with ceramics. When I was 17, I started my own ceramic workshop because I hate to ask anyone for work – I feel shy and ashamed. Due to my lack of experience, I had to shut it down and went to work in other studios as well as in a ceramics museum, where I learned everything – from how to look for clay to crafting techniques.
"Currently I again have my own workshop where we craft a variety of products, mostly decorative. We cut the metal sheets and hammer them into shape. Then we weld them and add the details. For a clean appearance, we submerge them in an acid bath to remove grease and carbon. After that, they are treated to rust before we paint them with a special, lead-free paint. 

 "We are the first workshop in the area to utilize a fine blowtorch as a work tool and to give more originality to our products. Every piece created at my workshop goes hand in hand with originality, design and quality. We are always developing new designs and products."

    Hand made, high quality craftsmanship, arrived in a fair amount of time (shipped from Mexico) and this is a unique work of art. Don't want to use this beautiful art outside! It compliments other crafts from the artisan (see his other work). I highly recommend this piece for artistic reasons but also for the craftmanship and just simply a hand made beautiful work of art. See the other pieces of art hand made by the artist and realize how well they all compliment one another. Would recommend this piece alone or to compliment other work by the artist. The depth of this art piece is fabulous, sets it off and is made to have a candle placed behind it for effect. This is without a doubt a five stars product!

    I love this wall art! I ordered the larger one first and liked it so much that I ordered the smaller one as well. I've received lots of compliments on them. They stand out from the wall to accommodate a candle ( I use battery operated tea lights) and that really makes them POP!

    This is a beautiful piece, so glad I decided to buy it. Goes very well with the rest of my Kokopelli and sun faced brass wall pieces. It is very well constructed, and should last a very long time.

    I am very happy with this purchase . I did think it would hang flush with the wall, didn't expect it had a place for a candle on the back. I went to Mexico but didn't bring back a souvenir so was happy to find this on Overstock

    Well worth the money. Its better than I expected. Great quality, size, color and price. It has a place for a tee lite candle on the back side so it protrudes out from the wall about 2". It makes it look so much better on the wall. I put one of those battery operated flickering candles in it and it looks awsome. I'm so glad I bought this!

    Unique piece, I really like it. It's hanging on a small wall in my dining room. I also like how it isn't flush with the wall, sticks out a bit because it has a votive candle holder on the back. The color is great, not gaudy.
