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 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
