Espousing an environmental ethic in his work, Norval Morrisseau spoke often of the natural balance found in nature, and illustrated the intricate bond of kinship that links all life. For Morrisseau the transformation of animals and humans indicates that the reality we know is constantly changing and not what it ostensibly appears to be. -Armand Ruffo
