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

1) On one print the limitation is clearly readable, however I have different citations from other sources. Furthermore there seem to be other version available. I have seen one that is not numbered and titled but signed (collection Smithonian) and two that are unsigned (maybe open edition). Clarification is needed.

– Smithonian – The National Museum of the American Indian
