This book addresses the meanings and origin of the ancient humpbacked flute player, the Southwest's most popular icon, dating back to prehistoric times. En route, it introduces new findings about the role of flute playing in shamanism, ancient creation myths, and fertility rituals, and concludes with a discussion of public rock art sites for readers wishing to see the original petroglyphs. Included are more than 300 flute player images never before published and many of which challenge our current understanding of this charismatic figure.
