This Native American pendant is a Kokopelli...a fertility deity depicted as a humpbacked flute player with a feathered headdress. Kokopelli symbolizes both childbirth and agriculture. Kokopelli's flute playing chases away the winter and brings about spring. Many tribes, such as the Zuni, also associate Kokopelli with the rains. He also represents the spirit of music. In more recent years, Kokopelli is a general symbol of the Southwest.
This Kokopelli pendant is made of sterling silver with stones of genuine turquoise and red coral. It measures 3/4 inch across by 1 7/8 inches high. It weighs 7 grams. The back is marked STERLING. Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1970s.
