Kokopelli is a fertility deity, usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player, often with a huge phallus and antenna-like protrusions on his head. Kokopelli has been venerated by some Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. Like most fertility deities, Kokopelli presides over both childbirth and agriculture. He is also a trickster god and represents the spirit of music.
