The Spirit of Sails sculpture in downtown Kelowna has become the target of vandalism.
On Sunday, the sculpture was seen with three black crosses spray-painted around the perimeter.
The Kelowna RCMP said an investigation is currently ongoing and CTV cameras will be thoroughly examined.
The iconic fiberglass sculpture was designed by a well-known local sculptor, Robert Dow Reid in 1978. It has since become a symbol for the city and is often featured in many tourism publications. Known locally as simply ‘the sails’, the work is 12m high and weighs approximately 1,820 kilograms.
