The Native American sculptural figure Nakoma was a 16' statue designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in conjunction with the Nakomis sculpture for the Nakoma Country Club, a building inspired by the ceremonial campgrounds of the Winnebago Tribe. Wright's original commission was to be built in Wisconsin, but it was never realized until the clubhouse was recently constructed by Taliesin Architects.
The Nakoma sculpture is a curvilinear design, symbolic of the earth and Mother Nature as well as domestic virtue. her back is a continuous circle, with a round head and she holds a round bowl. Nakoma also carries a papoose and has a child at her side.
