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.

NOTES 

The artist leaves a quote for the painting: The concept for creating this piece was to give honour to the wolf clan and the power of finding a balance within. As a symbol of the community spirit, and instincts for self preservation, my idea was to give thanks  for the power of these influences in our lives. I also wanted to reflect a sort of balance in the composition as to reflect the search for balance in our daily lives.  The wolf spirit in the center of the piece is being protected and guided by the eagle spirit which represents the visionary aspects of manifesting a sense of balance and purpose. Inside the eagle's wing is a fish which represents the water element and purification. The 2 circles being shown with a line of inter-connectedness represents the sun and the moon and the cycles of the seasons in which we all try to discover a balance in our lives, and most importantly, in our relationships with one another. All my relations.
