Thunderbird

Recreation of “Man Changing into Thunderbird” by Norval Morrisseau, an Indigenous Canadian artist from the Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek First Nation.

 

This piece resonated with me because of the colourful journey - it is a 6 panel masterpiece that shows the artist’s spiritual transformation:

“Morrisseau visually transforms: he is a young man embarking on a spiritual and artistic journey in panel one; a wing emerges in panel two; and a claw appears in panel three. By the fourth panel, the background has become entirely copper and two claws and a shamanic hairstyle signal the artist’s evolution. In the final panel, Morrisseau’s transformation is complete: he has become Copper Thunderbird." @artcaninstitute 

Medium: Acrylic paint on 12"x16"       canvas board
