About the Artwork

Created by Robert Davidson, OC, OBC, the medallion captures both the spirit and purpose of BC Achievement’s five award programs. The design incorporates the concepts of universality and cultural excellence through the use of a two-dimensional figure representing the male and female, and the raven as a cultural hero.
“Cultural hero: spirited, undaunted, fearless, bold. Raising our awareness to a higher understanding.” – Robert Davidson, OC, OBC
