2-9-09 "Sibyl" goes to the White House
Roberto has shipped a framed limited edition print of "Sibyl" to Pres. Barack H. Obama at the White House as a Valentine's Day gift from a grateful nation. The message reads...

Sibyl to Aeneas: "Yeld not to disasters, but press onward the more bravely!"

Roberto Montoya-Mejia was inspired by this legend and Michelangelo's painting of "Sibyl" on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

Mr. President, the artist hopes you will see that Sibyl's headdress is made up of the ballots of the millions who voted for you. On one side of each ballot is a wish for your success, on the other side is a bit of timeless wisdom, to be interpreted by Sibyl for you and your Administration.

Thank you for your respect for all religions and cultures, for your eloquence and for your humility.

Happy Valentine's Day from "Sibyl"

(signed Roberto Montoya-Mejia, 2009)
Happy New Year!
