X-ray style
Developed by Norval Morrisseau as both a painting style and shamanistic device, the X-ray style of painting reveals the souls of humans and animals by using black “spirit” lines that emanate from the spines of figures, surrounding and linking them. Often, internal organs are shown within bold, bright colour segments.
