Kokopelli Yard Art
Before & After
We found those two huge black Kokopellis below in the neighborhood on trash day. I wondered if they were homemade out of starboard or if they were manufactured. I really liked the shapes and thought the material was perfect for outdoors. They were very light weight and so we decided to carry them home (on our bicycles) and paint them. Kokopelli is a fun loving Native American deity who presides over agriculture and childbirth. Many ancient cultures believe Kokopelli was a trader and gifted story teller who connected distant and diverse communities. We painted them in a high-spirited fashion by blending Acrylic paints and adding millions of stars. They're now hanging on our back yard fence connecting our fun loving family to the endless possibilities of the magical universe:)
I'm a mom of two perfect kids and two fluffy English Mastiffs named Lilo & Stitch. I love to research, write, draw, paint, plant seeds, raise butterflies and make things! My Etsy is all organic and handmade by me. Our family loves the outdoors and so it's important that I contribute to a healthy environment and clean water by choosing sustainable materials.
