INTRODUCTION:

We wish you a good day to each and everyone. On Oct.1st, 2011, Mark Anthony Jacobson became the first native artist in Canadian history to launch and publish an authorized and official catalogue raisonne of his known artworks to date, preceding that of either Norval Morrisseau and the N.M.H.S. (The Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society). We extend a warm welcome to the many friends, collectors, researchers, galleries, museums and other institutions both educational and otherwise worldwide to this authorized resource on Mark Anthony Jacobson artworks. This database will offer and ensure impeccable pedigree for each piece of Jacobson art, will be an excellent source of security from forgeries and will guarantee the authenticity of your various Mark Anthony Jacobson artworks by offering solid provenance and documentation which is found throughout this catalogue.

There will be many updates to this catalogue raisonne over time. So far, we have found a wide variety of many hundreds of Jacobson artworks and there are still about 800 pieces which we hope will be found that date from 1987 to 2010 and will be added to this database. In the meantime, please feel free to browse the many paintings, drawings, prints and other media which the artist has created. This database will continue to grow with images and stories to his artworks from the past, to the present new updates of his latest works, and the future of newly discovered treasures. We thank you for expressing your interest in collecting, marketing, and educating yourselves about the art and legacy of one of Canada's most exciting shamanistic woodland artists. All our relations. Added note: You can click on any image of an artwork for a bigger view. To scroll the next pages throughout this database: At the bottom of each page, click "Older Posts" for pg.'s 2, 3, 4, and etc. Thank you

NOTES
This painting represents a vision I had about our Mother Earth in a dream state. It was as if she was expressing to me, her passion and desires. Her harmony, her instinctual ways. I have been in a love affair with our planet for decades. I adore her and respect her powers.

Here in this vision the animal clans are playing with her and her energy. There is such a process of birth, life, death and rebirth upon her. Mother Earth and our Creator are always in a constant flux of change. There is much wisdom in these understandings. It helps us to simply "let it be" and marvel at her wonders.

Any how, this painting is a privilege and honour for me with regard to expressing these visions. There is a humility and awe that resides within me every single day. I love our planet, and I'm very thankful for these revelations and teachings. It is an h0nour to share these dreams with you. All my relations, MAJ

NOTES 

Painting was created for a lovely family I know who have been collecting my work for a while now. The painting is a reflection of the sacredness of the family unit. A crest so to speak. 

The eagles represent the visionary within us all. They mate for life, eagles so, loyalty is a strong principle for this visionary. The birds reflect the songs and beauty of Mother Earth, that it is good medicine to live right with our earth Mother. The moose represents the provisions being shared by creation. It is important for future generations to know this, to live in harmony with our relatives upon her. All my relations, MAJ

NOTES
The story: The thunderbirds are guardians and protectors of those ways we hold sacred. We are not to be messed around with. To piss off a thunderbird isn't a good thing.

Any how, our alignments with the spiritual realms are known to be a true blessing. We are messengers and story tellers of things from the past, present and even future....prophecy.

We are visionaries amongst the human tribes. Many of us....artists.

I wanted to honour the bonds of true friendship I have in my life. My upper circle I call it. My trusted brothers and sisters of the spirit. They know who they are.

For each of you I say to your soul: chi-meegwetch for being my friend, working through life issues, complications and other various personality conflicts that arise out of them. For those who have stayed loyal: I love you. To those who couldn't get over themselves? I'll always love you.

Sometimes people come around for a little while, a long while and then there are those who remain for the rest of your life. To all of you it is a blessing that our souls have crossed paths. May the spirit of our Creator continue to guide and watch over each and everyone of you.

The powers of the spirit are alive and well. Ask and you will receive. The Creator is always there.....waiting patiently and lovingly.....desiring always to connect. Like thunderbird medicine, so is this rarity of finding the truest of friendships in my life, and wishing that for each of you as well.

All my relations....MAJ

NOTES
Here's the story: Times are rapidly changing upon our earth mother. The animal kingdoms better understand this, than us. They are directly effected by everything we do.

In this painting the great buffalo is being shown as the buffalo represent Abundance. They are life givers like our women, They also provide like our men, for the family unit. They show courage, strength and determination throughout the elements.

The deer clan teach us patience yet the importance of movement, of being flexible throughout life. They show us that to walk gently upon our earth Mother is the way.

We also see coyote being shown within the buffalo. This important understanding reflects the need to be self honest about our actions. That we need not play the great trick on ourselves. We must be prudent and focused for the time is now.

We have the clan of the crane being represented here as well for crane teaches us to take the leadership role. We must continue to take the lead in each of our lives. Crane medicine is essential for all lives here are dependent on our actions.

We also see the fish inside the crane, this shows the sacred cycles of life, that all things are truly interconnected.

The great turtle is a reflection of our Mother Earth, that she is the care taker of us humans and the rest of life upon her. The frog clan teaches us the importance of rising our voices. To share with one another our songs, our hopes, dreams and visions. Frog is also duel elemental that it lives on both land and in water. That these sacred powers must be respected.

We also have the butterflies and dragonflies being shown. This medicine of nature shows us the importance of our thoughts, feelings and actions. That we must continue to unify ourselves and the rest of humanity. This is our goal. To live in harmony with nature.

Butterfly also teaches the importance of the cycles of change that happen in our lives. That with the spiritual way, the way of the land, is in right alignment with our destiny. The future is now, the moment is always ours. This is what the animal clan council wishes to reflect to us at this crucial and pivotal point in our collective preservation as a whole....for we are all one.

Chi-meegwetch and all our relations,

MAJ - Rainbow Thunderbird
