Dignity (a.k.a. Dignity of Earth & Sky) is an amazing new sculpture overlooking the Missouri River near Chamberlain, South Dakota.
The 15.24 meter high stainless steel statue by South Dakota artist laureate Dale Claude Lamphere depicts an Indigenous woman in Plains-style dress receiving a star quilt.
According to Lamphere, the sculpture honors the culture of the Lakota and Dakota peoples who are indigenous to South Dakota.
Engineering of Rapid City, SD ensured the sculpture would endure the strong winds common in the area.
