“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.
