Dignity

Posted by Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 6 December 2017 in Art & Design.

A sculpture, by South Dakota artist laureate Dale Lamphere, depicts an Indigenous woman in Plains-style dress receiving a star quilt. It's meant to honor the culture of the Lakota and Dakota peoples who are indigenous to South Dakota. It's located, at a rest stop along Interstate Highway 90, near Chamberlain, South Dakota.

Part of the Roadside Oddities Series

So powerful. I really like how I can't judge the scale of the statue from the surroundings - a great effect and makes the image all the more striking.
