Photographer's Note

Kokopelli, the humpbacked Flute player and ancient American Indian god of fertility helps grow crops and seduce women with his song. His hunch back carries babies for the women and beans to plant new crops.

Like most fertility deities, Kokopelli presides over both childbirth and agriculture. Kokopelli is usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player (often with a huge phallus and antenna-like protrusions on his head), who is worshipped by many Native American tribes in the Southwestern United States.

In his domain over agriculture, Kokopelli's fluteplaying chases away the Winter and brings about Spring.

This photo was taken against the backdrop of sky lit by the setting Sun. Later I cropped the bottom portion and added a frame.

So, enjoy fertile spring!!
