Photographer's Note

Non-Violence, 1988, was a gift to the United Nations from Luxembourg.

The artist was Carl Fredrik Reutersward from Sweden.

It is located in the grounds of the United Nations, just past the visitors entrance on the east side of First Ave., between 45th and 46th streets.

"Non-Violence is a giant revolver, solid and black, and on a pedestal placing it at eye level. The barrel of the gun is twisted into a knot, causing the tip to point straight up into the sky rather than in the direction in which it is aimed. The gun is cocked, but the knot makes it clear that it will not shoot."

Tech: Cropped, resized and sharpened.
