Two Authentic Morrisseau Artworks Revisited
The Norval Morrisseau painting on the right was featured on the cover of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (formerly Musée du Québec) catalogue in 1966 titled Norval Morrisseau. From page 68: "Mikkinak, the ancient sacred turtle of the Ojibway shaking tent rites. The turtle was the interpreter of the demi-gods who came into the shaking tent ceremony performed by the shaman. The lines represent continuation, and the balls, the never ending circle of power." This painting was sold by KRG in 2006. Private Collection. (USA, Texas) The painting on the left (available for sale) was painted by Norval Morrisseau in 1989 while the artist lived in the A-frame house at Aldergrove, B.C. on the Coghlan Art Studio property.
