"De Lue has imbued his Nike with American attributes. The Greek goddess of victory was not invested with attributes of either freedom or liberty, yet De Lue has his Nike breaking the manacles of slavery and wearing the cap of liberty. This design was conceived as a monument to the battle of Corregador to be erected at Manilla in the Philippines." - from D. Roger Howlett "Donald De Lue; Gods, Prophets, and Heroes," 1990, pg. 65.
