Superb finely made and detailed pewter native American Indian dream catcher pendant featuring a feather and an arrow dangling from the bottom and in the centre is the instantly recognisable Kokopelli character finished in a lustrous red resin – brand new and retail packaged. It comes ready to wear on an adjustable cord (approx 14″ to 30″ long) although it would look fine on your own favourite chain. Kokopelli is a prehistoric deity, a fertility god, a prankster, a healer and a story teller. Often depicted as a humpbacked flute player, this mythic being has survived in recognizable form from Anasazi times to the present – the Anasazi or Ancient Ones being farmers on the Colorado Plateau over 3000 years ago. Although his true origins are unknown, this travelling, flute-playing Casanova is a sacred figure to many South western Native Americans. Carvings of him have been found painted and carved into rock walls and boulders throughout the Southwest and further afield over 1000’s of years. There is something appealing about Kokopelli which fascinates all kinds of people, even in our modern technological age. There are many myths of the famous Kokopelli – that he travels from place to place bringing changes of the seasons – that the hunch on his back depicts the sacks of seeds and songs he carried – whatever the true meaning of Kokopelli is, he has been a source of music making and dancing, and spreading joy to those around him. Dream catchers were originally designed to hang over people’s beds so that only good dreams could get through – any bad dreams would be caught in the ‘net’ and then they would disappear when the sun came up and the good dreams would slide down the feathers to the sleeping person. As a pendant this can apparently catch any harm that might be in the air just as a spider’s web catches and holds whatever comes into contact with it. It is a lovely piece of jewellery full of ancient mysticism, power and charm – a perfect gift or a treat for yourself!
