The Non-Violence sculpture is an amazing piece of art and my choice for day 17 of the Normandy Advent Calendar.

Non-violence sculpture

I took this shot when I visited the Caen Mémorial Museum, Centre for History and Peace. It’s displayed in the grounds of the museum close to the entrance.

The sculpture is also known as The Knotted Gun. A Swedish artist created this piece in bronze following the shooting of former Beatle John Lennon. Since 1993, the sculpture has been the symbol of The Non-Violence Project, a nonprofit organization that promotes social change through violence-prevention education programmes.

There are 31 copies of the Knotted Gun sculpture around the world. For more information about the Caen Memorial Museum , click here.
