The family of the late Nils Jensen are proud to have funded the final piece for the M’akhotso (Mother of Peace) sculpture purchased in his honour outside Monterey Recreation Centre.


Jensen died April 7, 2019 due to cancer. On July 26, which would have been his 70th birthday, the community gathered to honour Jensen with the M’akhotso sculpture by Linda Lindsay. Jensen cherished the sculpture, which was part of the Arts Alive initiative he helped create. It sits in perpetuity at the south end of the Monterey Centre parking lot, next to the rain garden he championed.


One thing that was missing from the sculpture was a plaque in Jensen’s name, until now.


A bronze plaque is ready and will be attached to the M’akhotso sculpture for the anniversary of Jensen’s death, April 7.
