Sculptor Spends 2 Years To Build Knife Angel Out Of 100,000 Weapons

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 built out of morbid necessity to remember the victims fallen to the increasing knife violence in the United Kingdom and to finally acknowledge that there is a real problem.

The angel’s creator, Alfie Radley, has spent two years designing and building the sculpture which features police donated knives that were actually used in violent crimes all over England and Wales, some of which even have the names of the victims engraved onto the blades.

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.
