Brief, academic and accessible introduction to "the flute dude" in rock art. The most ubiquitous symbol of the Southwest has some forgotten characteristics, "But there may be hope for the public's eventual enlightenment. If my conservative uncle can refer to Kokopelli as 'the dick-man,' progress is being made." I wonder if Kokopelli would be more marketable with or without his proper anatomy?
A lot of good information in here including flute player images around the world (though it mainly focuses on the 4 corners region of the US), a guide to flute player image sites, and a look at some of the more common kokopelli and other flute player myths and stories. An easy, interesting, and fun read for the kokopelli lover.
