Cristovao Canhavato (Kester) (1966-…), Throne of weapons
 (голосов: 0)
This throe sculpture is made from guns and parts of guns used in the devastating civil war in Mozambique. It was made by the Mozambican artist Kester from decommissioned weapons collected after the end of that war in 1992. It is a product of TAE (Transformaçaõ de Armas em Enxadas), a project which encourages the exchange of weapons for agricultural, domestic and construction tools. The result is a vivid reminder of sixteen years of devastating civil war as well as a symbol of hope for the future.

This throne is one of the most powerful masterpieces of art in the British Museum and has provoked strong emotions wherever it has been shown. The throne has not just been displayed in the Museum but has also been taken to other museums, schools, prisons, churches and other venues.
