Police in the Vancouver Island community of Saanich say a valuable piece of First Nations art was stolen during a break-in at the University of Victoria.

Last Monday, Saanich police say the Fraser building was broken into, and the Sul-Sultan art piece by Tsartlip artist Charles W. Elliot was taken.

The piece is described as carved cedar with inlaid abalone, depicting a central human figure flanked by two wolf figures, with a frog at the lower centre area.

It was commissioned and is owned by the UVic Law Faculty, and is valued at $10,000.

A vending machine and several lockers were also broken into.

Saanich Police are asking people to phone them or Crime Stoppers if they have any information on the theft and break-in.
