Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd
Non-Violence is a bronze sculpture by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd of an oversized Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver with a knotted barrel and the muzzle pointing upwards.
Reuterswärd made this sculpture after singer-songwriter and peace activist John Lennon was murdered. Since 1993, the sculpture has been the symbol of The Non-Violence Project, a nonprofit organization that promotes social change through violence-prevention education programs.
The Museum of Sketches in Lund, Sweden holds a sketch of the firearm on which Reuterswärd noted that his grief at the murders of Lennon and Bob Crane inspired him to design this artwork.
