"Wirl-Wind Sonnet (in B minor)"
By Brona Wingell
26"x28", acrylic on canvas "His(Morrisseau's) new vision of the Thunderbird School motivated him to once more break barriers considered taboo. He flew to Toronto intent on forming the Thunderbird School. He was guided in his quest by his own prophetic dreams and painted depictions which for him clearly defined the physical features, nature, and even astrological signs of those who would be the originating members of the school.
His dreams and paintings showed that the school would be built foursquare in accordance with the traditional aboriginal medicine wheel. Two cornerstone "visionaries" would be of Aboriginal descent and two would be European. This would effectively create a vibrational 'rainbow bridge' between races, thereby opening up the Shamanistic teachings to the Western world in an undeniable fashion." Woodland Gold
