God of Dating and Mating.

He's a jolly hunchback soul who skips around playing the flute and inspiring the fruits of love to blossom. Rather like the horny old PAN, he is a primitive God of carefree lust. And consequently very popular.

His most important organ is uncommonly large — and also detachable. Forget Cupid's arrow; if you're a young maiden taking a quick dip, you could find KOKOPELLI's weapon being fired at you. And while you may enjoy the experience, the patter of tiny feet are sure to follow.

KOKOPELLI also takes part in corn grinding rituals as he loves a good gyration, and can even cause a quick downpour to cool things off afterwards. Life is never dull with Koko the clown. See also TONENILI.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Kokopelli graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Kokopelli movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.

Visitors often email us asking about Kokopelli statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Kokopelli. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
