Norval (called Copper Thunderbird) Morrisseau

Untitled (Shaman)

Category: 
In this early exploration of shamanistic themes, the bold and powerful use of colour reflects Morrisseau’s own spiritual personality and sense of place. His distinct aesthetic perspective honours his cultural heritage and the Anishnaabe land that has served as a source of inspiration for many. Truly innovative, he transformed how the work of First Nations artists was understood and valued.
