Weave yourself into the profound narrative within Norval Morrisseau’s masterpiece, “Bear Mother Teaching Young About Environment.” Painted in 1986, this remarkable acrylic on canvas, measuring 48″ x 72,” captures the interconnectedness of nature and the nurturing bonds of family.
At the heart of the composition stands a mother bear, her presence radiating a sense of wisdom and protectiveness. Accompanied by her two cubs, she traverses the land with purpose and grace, embodying the profound teachings she imparts to the next generation.
Perched atop the mother bear’s form are four Thunderbirds, celestial messengers whose divine presence underscores the importance of spiritual guidance in this sacred teaching moment.
The mother bear, adorned in shades of light brown, carries a green hump on her back that resembles a leaf—a poignant symbol of her intrinsic connection to the land and her role as a steward of the environment. Her cubs, draped in light blue hues, represent the innocence and curiosity that drives their journey of discovery.
