This is a beautiful print by the renowned American artist Niles Nakaoka. Entitled "Leaning In Hard Against The Grain - 4USA" it is #2 of a limited run of 64, giclee on paper, and depicts a Ferrari Formula 1 car, the driver wearing a helmet sporting the Scuderia's red of 7 time World Champion Michael Schumacher. It was purchased by me in 2004 (I think - might have been '03) It's framed in black wood that has a pronounced curve to it - resembles a tire. Please be aware that the "lightning bolt" down the middle of picture #1 does NOT appear on the print - it's the flash from my camera. As you can see, it doesn't appear in picture #2 (although the closet door across the room does) Try and ignore my bad photography skills and delight in the movement and color that the artist has brought to life. Love motor racing, F1, Ferrari, or just great color and light ? This print is for you.
