Elza Mayhew . 1967

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.
