Atlas Obscura ‘The Knotted Gun’

This intriguing sculpture stands within Malmö, Sweden. It’s a striking work of art with a poignant message.

The Knotted Gun, also known as Non-Violence, was created made by Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd. It isn’t your ordinary image of a gun, as the end of its barrel twists into a knot. On the other side of the road, you can see its companion, a large square sculpture with a hole in it.
