KOKOPELLI MOON / Daily Painting #970

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

This little beauty is from the former Southwest Museum, now a part of the Autry Museum in Los Angeles. She is the female version of Kokopelli, or Kokopelli Mana. Interestingly, her role is always performed by a male, as are all the Kachinam. Here's what the musum has to say about her:

KOKOPÖLMANA Hopi, circa 1934

This Katsina represents fertility and zealously seeks out males to engage in actions mimicking sexual intercourse. She is not shy in her motives, so women protect the men from her advances. This action provides much laughter but is an explicit example of procreation.
