In this piece, Norval Morrisseau depicts a world inside an existence inside a tent, while an outside force, a large creature, shakes the tent from the outside. Morrisseau personifies the wind as a faceless monster, communicating the strength of nature and humans’ inability to hide from the natural in our increasingly technological era. He uses his signature style of bold colours to tell his story and relay his message in a vivid a manner.
