Sacred Otters with Children
Norval Morrisseau
1990, 60″ x 96″, acrylic on canvas
In the early 1990s Norval had me fly out to the West Coast with six Otter pelts for him. He planned to make a ceremonial coat adorned with sea shells. To keep the pelts safe I brought them on the plane with me…. Its amazing how attractive Otter pelts are to flight attendants!
