[[Image:Bangpūtys.jpg|thumb|Modern fantastic carving of Bangpūtys]] '''Bangpūtys''' is the god of sea and storm in Lithuanian mythology. ==Description== Bangpūtys was described as two-faced with beard and wings. He is typically illustrated as holding a fish in his left hand, a untensil in his right and a rooster on the head. ==Family== Rytys, Pietys, Šiaurys and Vakaris (easterly, southern, northern and westerly) are his sons. They are commonly known as gods of wind. ==Behavior== According to some mythologists, Bangpūtys is stern and merciless. Based on a story, he wanted to drown Auštaras (son of Aušrinė and Mėnuo) because Auštaras caused a storm as he was swimming in the sea. ==Reference== *Straižys, Vytautas; ''Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient Balts'', Lietuvos Dangus (Sky of Lithuania), Vilnius, p.115, 1990.
