This piece, above a fireplace, was

Kokopelli is the ancient American Indian
God of Abundance who is said to have roamed the hills of the southwest.
Depicted in ancient rock carvings as
a humpbacked flute player, he was believed to bring fertility
and good fortune to whomever he met. His arrival was marked by
celebration, dancing and singing.
This 4.5 x 5 ft. steel forging designed
to hang on a chimney wall depicts pleasures to be enjoyed in this
game room plus the name and profession of the clients.
This relief was designed by the artist as an element to relieve
the large expanse of wall above the fireplace. It was also designed
as a reflection of the clients' aesthetic preferences and picks
up on the geometric lines of the architecture and adjacent painting.
