Kokopelli. World's Largest Kokopelli

The World's Largest Kokopelli has been seriously outdone by the drive-thru Starbucks' sign. Iamgros and I were disappointed by the amount of fast food restaurants littering our photograph, but the guy selling polyester 420 blankets in the parking lot made it up to us by offering a king size howling wolf throw at half price. I guess in today's world Starbucks IS the new trading post.

World's Largest Kokopelli

The world's largest Kokopelli now stands in front of a tiny strip mall that houses a drive-thru Starbucks and a Verizon wireless store. The Kokopelli gift shop is still there, and the Kokopelli statue was freshly painted.

Worlds Largest Kokopelli

This 32-foot tall statue of the Navajo Indian God of Wealth and Fertility stands in front of the Krazy Kokopelli Trading Post.

Kokopelli, the hump-back flute player, is a symbol seen all over the southwest. Evidence from canyon walls and ancient pottery indicate that he was a popular symbol to many Indian tribes. To the Hopi, Kokopelli actually represents one who brings the burden of babies and also one who carries sacks of buckskins for the women to make moccasins. In the springtime he is part of ceremonies depicting certain mating rituals. In Zuni culture, Kokopelli is known to be an important rain priest who brings in the rain. Known as Ololowishkya, he is shown with a festive hairstyle, and is always seen with flute, playing Paiyatamu as part of corn grinding ceremonies.
