Knitted Toque by Norval Morrisseau, Ojibway
This knitted taupe toque is the perfect accessory for anybody’s head. It is stretchy, warm, and stylish. This embroidered Moose Harmony design is by late Ojibway artist Norval Morrisseau.
Norval Morrisseau (1931-2007) described himself as a "born artist" who had a compulsion to draw from his earliest memories. He was a prolific artist and published author who was also a cornerstone to the art movement considered the Woodland School of Art. Morrisseau was the recipient of numerous honourary degrees and the Aboriginal Lifetime Achievement Award. He was also a member of the Order of Canada and the Royal Academy of Arts, and the first First Nations artist to have a solo exhibit in the National Gallery of Canada which now houses a permanent collection of his art. In recognition of his talents and contributions to First Nations communities across Canada, he was awarded a Great Eagle Feather and was appointed as Grand Shaman by the Ojibway.
