The astral worlds depicted in this large-scale work neither replace nor erase Morrisseau’s Anishinaabe cultural vocabulary. They demonstrate a fusion. After almost twenty years of study, he had fully adopted Eckankar teachings into his visual vocabulary.
A calm has descended on this painting that reflects the sense of quiet that the artist achieved in his sixties and seventies. Morrisseau found balance in his personal life, and this symmetrical painting attests to that fact.
