Okaga, The South Wind
The second sculpture in the Lakota Winds series finished in bronze is this beautiful fellow named for the South Wind, Okaga. In the Lakota legend, Okaga was the brother who won the “girl” in the story, making Yata, the North Wind very unhappy. That is one reason why these two winds make their homes as far away from one another as possible. Another spelling for the name of the South Wind I have found is Itokagata. This sculpture has a more golden warm patina and a happier look than that of his brother, who is the more serious of the two.
Also a limited edition sculpture of only 62, Okaga is 19″ high, 15″ long from nose to tail and 8″ deep. His patina is Sunshine Gold.
