Modern fantastic carving of Bangpūtys

Bangpūtys is the god of sea and storm in Lithuanian mythology.


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.


Rytys, Pietys, Šiaurys and Vakaris (easterly, southern, northern and westerly) are his sons. They are commonly known as gods of wind.


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.
