Kokopelli Tray

A friend of mine moved to Albuquerque and I thought it would be fun to make her a house warming present of some sort. I decided on painting a wooden serving tray. I found a Kokopelli character on the internet, printed it and carefully cut it out. Then I spent hours with the cutout and pencil & paper, trying to come up with some sort of design. I wanted something Southwesterny, but it had to be something I could actually paint, lol. This is what I came up with.
Kokopelli TrayFor a hundred and one reasons I won't go into, the tray never got finished and never got sent to Albuquerque. I think I'm going to leave it as is, with the unfinished white outsides, and hang it in my kitchen.

Brilliant! If you could mass produce these, you could sell hundreds of them.

Unbelievable. Both Kokopelli and Albuquerque are spelled correctly . .

. . . design genius combined with linguistic rigor !
