This Giant Knife Angel Made Of 100,000 Weapons Is Actually A Powerful Tribute



There’s a giant 26-foot-tall Knife Angel sculpture in the UK, built entirely out of 100,000 donated knives. But besides the impressive statistics, it’s also a monument build out of morbid necessity to remember the victims fallen to the increasing knife violence in the United Kingdom.

The angel’s creator, Alfie Radley, has spent two years designing and building the sculpture. It features police donating knives that were actually use in violent crimes all over England and Wales.

Some of which even have the names of the victims engraved onto the blades. The rest came thanks to the help of British Ironwork Centre in Shropshire. It initiated an amnesty program “Save a Life, Surrender Your Knife.”

Radley is currently running a petition to put the sculpture on Trafalgar square in London to raise awareness of the issue, and you can show your support right here.
