Kokopelli Twins
Originally uploaded by LeJyBy.
I went to an Indian party yesterday, I ate a lot of delicious vegetarian food, and I brought a double present to my hosts: this set of two etched glasses. They figure the Kokopelli god and its comparse, Kokopelli-mana. My hosts offered me in return a beautiful cotton shirt with bright colors, called a "courta", that I like a lot :)

Dixit wikipedia, Kokopelli is a fertility deity, usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player, who has been venerated by many Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. He is also a trickster god and represents the spirit of music. My kind of god!

The party was nice, and I think that I will try to take the time to etch more in the following months: it is really relaxing!

I think the only vegetarian food in the world I could live on is the indian one. It's so tasty and rich in variety that I would never end being surprised.
