Support Non Violence @Regranned from @unitednations - On Thursday's International #PeaceDay, people around the world are showing their support for a world of peace, prosperity and protection for all. "Today and everyday let us not focus on what separates us but what binds us as a human family," said #UnitedNations Secretary-General António Guterres.
Pictured here is the “Non-Violence” (or “Knotted Gun”) sculpture at #UnitedNations Headquarters in #NYC by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd.
A gift from #Luxembourg to the UN, the artist designed the piece in 1980 following the murder of his friend, John Lennon. The sculpture, which consists of a large replica of a 45-calibre revolver with the barrel tied into a bullet-blocking knot, is an iconic symbol for peace.
Today, people around the world continue to appreciate and connect to the cherished piece and its powerful message. 📷: UN Social Media Team / Elif Gulec
