IT STANDS NEAR THE MCPHERSON LIBRARY LIKE A
RELIC. At first it doesn’t appear to be
quite of this world. Yet it echoes the traditional
native totems with which it shares the quadrangle.
Coast Spirit, the abstract bronze sculpture created
by Elza Mayhew—Victoria College ’32,
Honorary Doctorate ’89—was given
to the university in 1968 by Walter C. Koerner.
It’s offered here for your reflection and
in tribute to the artist, who passed away January
11 at the age of 87.
