Mounted on Imperial Black marble base measuring 1 1/4 x 13 3/8 x 10 inches. In fine condition. There was one other cast made prior to the edition of 12 for the Brookgreen Gardens, Murrel's Inlet, S.C. One other cast was made as a foundry proof at Tallix. 'There are those that believe that this is De Lue's finest work. He said he modeled it just after his marriage when he was trying to come up with a few important pieces. He did not exhibit it, however, until 1946, when it won the Gold Medal at the Allied Artists of America exhibition in New York. In 1948 a cast was placed in Brookgreen Gardens, S.C. The national Museum of American Art owns the plaster' from D. Roger Howlett 'Donald De Lue: Gods, Prophets, and Heroes,' 1990, pg. 19.
