This gorgeous large piece of Native American art was purchased personally from Michael almost 30 years ago. Number 51 from a run of only 69, it's accompanied by a five-page poem, dated Nov. 1977 and also signed. The poem, like the print, retells a Laguna-Acoma Pueblo Keresan legend. He often wrote descriptions of the subject matter on the backs of his paintings, but inclusion of a limited-edition printed poem is rare. Also unusual is that his typical signature J. Bear is amplified here to J...

Translated, this means: "On that day, that wrathful day, David and the Sibyl sa...
