A Winter Solstice Jam

with 5 comments

I was asked to design an invitation to our “Winter Solstice Party” (formerly known as our Office Christmas Party).  I decided to go with an American SouthWest theme featuring Kokopelli.  Kokopelli was originally a fertility deity.  Today he is more associated with fun, frivolity, and music.  He is also another representation of the Trickster archetype.   Typically, he is seen dancing with a flute.  Since our party will feature drumming and other percussion instruments, I adapted Kokopelli by giving him a drum. 

 Anyway, this is all just for fun and I thought I’d post it here at the Pythian Games.

  1. Lori this is great and I’m going to send the link to my Sister.

    Years ago my sister gave me a set of these figures for my Christmas tree. The were about 5 inches tall and made from thin strips of metal.

    I liked them so much I hung them from this little chain in my kitchen and somehow they ended up against the paneling by my kitchen table.

    Over the years the sun bleached out the wood around the figures so when I moved them I now have these six little figures dancing across my wall.

    It’s pretty cool.

  4. Great design, but be careful! Kokopelli IS a fertility god, after all – and your design only makes him more powerful!
