The Nakoma and Nakomis were commissioned by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1923 for the Nakoma Country Club in Madison, Wisconsin. The Country Club was never built until recently constructed by Taliesin architects. The club designs and the sculpture were inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s interest in the ceremonial campgrounds of the Winnebago Tribe, (Ho-Chunks) or “The People of the Sacred Language”. Frank Lloyd Wright shared with the Winnebagos a strong desire for connection with nature and family. The Nakoma is a Winnebago woman holding a bowl, carrying a papoose on her back and a child at her side. Nakomis is a Winnebago Chief with his son who is aiming a bow and arrow. These garden statues of Native Americans were inspired by American’s most famous and illustrious architect; they are indeed beautifully all American.
These creative designs are more durable than concrete garden statuary. Cast stone is the gold standard of the industry. You can be sure to enjoy this Frank Lloyd Wright garden statue for decades. Frank Lloyd Wright garden statues are the best of American designs.
