Kokopelli Where the Wild Things Are Picture

One of the Wild Things, from the classic kids storybook. here he is depicted playing a flute, and in the familiar posture of kokopelli, Native American fertility god.

All hand made from natural materials. Piece of log, gessoed with chalk dust, paint made from egg and hand ground pigment powders. There's an eco message implicit here, but I think I'll keep it implicit.

About the image itself...

I like mythology. Pan is a favorite deity. The horned monster from Where The Wild Things Are always reminded me of Pan. The Wild Things clearly. So does Kokopelli. The two make sense. Including this type of nature spirit iconography in a painting intended as Eco Art, well, that too felt right.

Thank you.
