Creative Journey Finds
Kokopelli Mana, ("KokoMana"),
portrays the feminine aspect, the female counterpart of Kokopelli, and
although extremely little is known of her in reality, I would like to
introduce my creation of her.
I have been
working on the concept of creating KokoMana
for some time now, and since a majority of the Kokopelli legends seem to
originate with the Hopi, my first KokoMana creation wore the
traditional Hopi hair do.
Later I came up with the idea of using feathers for her head-dress as it
seemed more mythological and compatible with Kokopelli's
"out-of-this-worldly" appearance. I call them "Spirit Feathers".
She has one less feather in her head-dress than Kokopelli.....sort of the missing rib
principle. This beautiful missing feather which she holds upright in her
hand represents life, love and spirit. As does woman, she
holds life in her hands. I now sometimes also create her holding one in each hand.
feathered head-dress is always changing,
A woman's prerogative for re-arranging"
I picture her
wearing a soft doe-skin dress in colors complementing Kokopelli's
The Scene is
visualize KokoMana's captivating appearance in the distance, standing there
upon the cliff above the deep canyon gorge, holding high the beautiful and special
love offering of "The Spirit
commences playing instantly inspired
across the canyon to his lovely
The uplifting sounds vibrate and echo off the canyon walls and Kokopelli
begin to dance and sway to the music....

First Dance of the Spirit Feather",

hope you enjoy my KokoMana. Her
creation has been a joyous journey!
