Sul-Sultan, a valuable First Nations art work by Tsartlip Coast Salish artist Charles W. Elliott, has been stolen from the University of Victoria.

The cedar carving (pictured), by Tsartlip Coast Salish artist Charles W. Elliott, was discovered missing after a break-in at the Fraser building on campus. The piece's value is estimated around $10,000.

"[The university is hoping] for a very quick recovery of this culturally significant piece of art," said Saanich Police acting Sgt. Jeremy Leslie.
