The star attraction of the National Ironworks Centre in England is called “Knife Angel.” It’s a towering, poignant tribute to lives lost by knife violence.
The Knife Angel stands 27 feet tall and is made of over 100,000 knives. The knives were collected from police departments in England. Thirty percent of the knives used in the sculpture were bloodied on arrival and came in biohazard bags.
It was constructed to raise awareness about knife crime. Alfie Bradley, the artist, disinfected and blunted the weapons before welding them to form the angel. Families of those lost to knife violence can engrave a message onto one of the sculpture’s many thousands of blades.
