Kokopelli

One of Kattenkilling’s aunts gave us a Christmas tree ornament for the holidays, a Kokopelli. A Hopi fertility / agriculture / trickster god, the description I like the most is as follows:

Another theory is that Kokopelli is actually an anthropomorphic insect. Many of the earliest depictions of Kokopelli make him very insect-like in appearance. The name “Kokopelli” may be a combination of “Koko”, another Hopi and Zuni deity, and “pelli”, the Hopi and Zuni word for the desert robber fly, an insect with a prominent proboscis and a rounded back, which is also noted for its zealous sexual proclivities.

I find it amusing, but I think my wife may be a wee bit grossed out by it, thus, I may start buzzing around the house like a sexy mosquito.

And here I was expecting a pair of chopsticks from my parents. They must have forgotten but clearly not my aunt.

And stop spelling my name wrong.

I thought you were going to post a picture of Isabella Rosellini in one of her insect mating rituals costumes.
