This print is signed ‘in plate’ (lower left horizontal) with ‘Copper Thunderbird’  in Cree syllabics and hand signed in pencil (lower left horizontal) with ‘Norval Morrisseau’.

1) The one observed is Artist Proof  #1 H.C. (Hand Colored).  One of
     Morrisseau’s dealer at the time has stated that from the AP’s made
     before the limited edition, the red on the body and wings of  the first 
     AP print did not print properly (not as bright as the rest).  This is the
     reason why Norval Morrisseau added red lines with acrilic paint onto
     the first AP. It’s the only one like that, the rest of the run of prints turned
     out properly bright.

Info needed:
– Name of the printmaker
– Literature (official statements in books, magazines, exhibits, original
  promotion material)
– Additional info or reference material
