"Perham Nahl's prize-winning poster for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Millions of men, women and children admired this heroic image, which appeared on the maps, book covers and catalogues of the exposition, advertised worldwide. The mythological Hercules is depicted, symbolically standing in for the builders of the Panama Canal, at the point at which they willed their way through the canal's colossal Culebra Cut."
