Santa Fe II- Objetos de arte (Objects of art)

I'm still feeling Santa Fe's. beauty, peace, charm, and openess. It was a remarkable city full of art and creative energy. Here are more photos of what was found and created by artisans of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Kokopelli is a fertility deity, usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player who has been worshipped since at least the time of the Ancient Pueblo Peoples. The first known images of him appear on Hohokam pottery dated to sometime between A.D. 750 and A.D. 850. These sculptures of Kokopelli in the photo are cut out ouf iron and displayed on the street in the Plaza section of Downtown Santa Fe. There are only two in the frame, but I like how the late afternoon sun casts a shadow behind them, making it four Kokopelli sculptures.
