Kokopelli, a Hopi Indian word, is known as a fertility deity. He is usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player, and dates back over 3,000 years when the first petroglyphs were carved into rock walls. Kokopelli presides over both childbirth and agriculture, and is also known as a trickster god who represents the spirit of music, spreading joy and happiness to those around. In his domain over agriculture, the Kokopelli's flute-playing is said to bring about the beginnings of Spring, while carrying seeds on his back ready for planting.
