Oklahoma Rain God Lic_Hass.jpg

The standard Oklahoma license plate depicts Allan Houser's "Sacred Rain Arrow" bronze sculpture, which has been on display at Tulsa's Gilcrease Museum for about 20 years. A federal appeals court said Tuesday an Oklahoma man can sue the state over its Indian "rain god" license plate, ruling the depiction of a noted sculpture on 3 million license plates could be interpreted as a state endorsement of a religion.
