The Knotted Gun
In the aftermath of the murder of his friend John Lennon, Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd designed the first Knotted Gun in bronze. Since then the sculpture, with its characteristic knot at the riffle, has become one of the most globally recognised symbols of peace. Our fine art collection comprises timeless bronze and humanium artwork that seamlessly integrates into the contemporary art scene. When buying a sculpture of the Knotted Gun, you support The Non-Violence movement. Discover more about our mission →
