“Non-Violence is a bronze sculpture by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd of an oversized Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver with a knotted barrel and the muzzle pointing upwards. There are currently 16 sculptures all around the world. One located at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
“Located in The Museum of Sketches in Lund, Sweden, is a sketch of the firearm where Reuterswärd has written that the grieving after John Lennon and Bob Crane were murdered inspired him to design this artwork.
“Since 1993, the Non-Violence sculpture is the symbol of The Non-Violence Project, a non-profit organisation, promoting social change with violence prevention education programs”. . . SOURCE: Wikipedia
