This sculpture is called the "Honorable Crown". It was created for the baccalaureate service in the month of April 2014.
"I was inspired by the thought of what a graduate is after college. The left hand has an olive branch, which represents Goshen College, and a way to say the storm is over, just to give hope for the future. And the right hand has a bird feeder, which to me means the skills and knowledge that every graduate has acquired from Goshen College and the community, and feeding the birds is a way to show appreciation to nature. In the piece I also incorporated some basketball materials; these represent all the athletes and their struggles. The pose shows moving forward, which illustrates the next thing in life after graduation." - Sunday Mahaja
