Does this mosaic of the Last Supper, found in Cowichan, look familiar?

Sam Judge is determined to find the owner of a mosaic of the Last Supper that she discovered in a shed in Cobble Hill earlier this month.

Sam Judge is determined to find the owner of a mosaic of the Last Supper that she discovered in a shed in Cobble Hill earlier this month.

Judge said the mosaic was found in the shed of an alleged drug house in her neighbourhood that was shut down recently by the Shawnigan Lake detachment of the RCMP.

She said once the RCMP and the bailiffs were finished searching through the house and shed for evidence and other material, the neighbours were invited to pick through much of what was left, and to take what they liked.

Judge said she found the mosaic thrown into the corner of the shed and covered with garbage.

She doesn’t think the people in the house were religious, and thinks an owner of the piece is out there.

“I’m determined to find the owners because I’m sure they are missing it terribly. It’s a little cracked in places, but it’s still in pretty good shape.”

There’s a stamp on the back of the mosaic that says “Valerie’s & Handcraft.”

Judge said she contacted the RCMP and pictures were taken of the mosaic in an effort to see if it matched anything that the police know is lost or stolen.

Const. Graham Holmes of the Shawnigan Lake RCMP detachment said he hasn’t been able to identify the mosaic or find its owners, but he’s still looking.

“It’s difficult because there’s no sale number or much else to help identify the owner,” he said.

“I also looked into the Valerie’s & Handcraft stamp, but couldn’t find anything, and another part of the stamp had a name that could be a south Asian country, but it’s hard to make out. The investigation is continuing.”

If anyone has any information on the mosaic, contact the Shawnigan Lake RCMP detachment.
