I Have Some Information

There's an article about the dedication in the Nov 12, 1980 issue of The Kingman Daily Miner. It can be viewed in Google News archives at (page 4).
It includes a write up about the sculpture by then newspaper editor Dick Waters, which reads: The copper and stainless-steel sculpture, titled Homage, or Respect, by Sculptor Gary Slater, is a gift to the people of Mohave County and to the indomitable and brave spirits which motivate them. The Sculpture, symbol of the environment granted us by Providence, uses copper "M," representing not only Mohave, but our mountains as well. From the mountains come the riches and minerals and metals - gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc, and, from the surface and soil, depicted by the green edge, God gives forth food and fibre to sustain us. The slightly curved piece of polished steel – edged in blue – represents our rivers and lakes, whence comes water to quench our thirst, to create energy, provide recreation and moisten the ground which grows the crops. The half wheel indicates the importance of transportation and of communication, and, of course, life’s own source, the sun. The short, upward directed rays, in yellow, are the sun’s rays, producers of life on this earth. The sun, the soil, the water – all – God’s gift to man to use as he will, for better or for worse.
