NORVAL MORRISSEAU (March 14th, 1931 - December 4th, 2007)

"Norval Morrisseau R.C.A., C.M., R.S.C. (Copper Thunderbird) was born under the astrological sign of pisces - an ancient symbol of duality. He believed that opposing sides of his personality coexisted in a symbiotic relationship where both parts affect one another."

>>> Additional information about astrological sign of pisces:
-
~ The animal associated with astrological sign of pisces is the fish, actually two fish swimming in different directions. Fish have long been a food staple and it is also associated with Christianity as a symbol, the two fishes swimming in opposite directions points up the inner tensions of the sign of pisces.
-
~ Pisces are the most intuitive and spiritually developed of the zodiac birth signs. Aptly called "old souls", Pisces thirst for spiritual knowledge and personal growth. They are the twelfth, and last, of the Zodiac signs, and as such, tend to have a more finely tuned intuition, sixth sense or extrasensory ability to perceive others feelings.
-
~ The duality of the Pisces personality is best described as a constant ebb and flow, back and forth, straddling the physical, material world and the ethereal, divine realm where Pisces vivid imagination, powerful intuition and creative daydreaming feel like home.
-
~ Being able to read and react to situations makes Pisces one of the most adaptive signs in the Zodiac. They are very intuitive and as a result can be flexible and prosper in many different situations. The intuitive nature of Pisces also makes them a very creative and imaginative sign. Pisces are often artists, writers and dreamers. The strong intuition of a Pisces can also mean that they are very spiritual.-

What a fantastic painting. There is a power to it that is unlike any I have ever seen before.
This style is very spiritual for sure.
