This design by De Lue was chosen as the 56th issue of the prestigious Society of Medalists series. The medal reprises elements from earlier reliefs De Lue created for the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and the facade of the Junior High School in Queens. The obverse bears a nude Creator, kneeling in the heavens in front of suns and stars. An upside down angel blows a trumpet and two tiny humans look up towards the oversized form of the Creator, shielding their faces in awe. Around, WHAT IS MAN THAT THOU ART MINDFUL OF HIM.
The reverse bears a reclining God, holding the sun in one hand and a tiny man in his other. A shooting star, stars, an atom provide the background. Below, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD CREATED.
The medal measures 73mm in diameter and was struck by the Medallic Art Company of New York. The reported production is 824 pieces in bronze and an unknown number in silver.
