The Knife Angel is made from thousands of knives, handed in, to highlight Knife crime. The Angel is touring around Britain, and at the moment it is in Newtown, Powys.
Here’s a few shots …
The Knife Angel stands 27 feet tall and is made of over 100,000 knives.

That is a good idea! So many knives handed in. Unfortunately, PM Boris Johnson kept his knives to stick the UK in the back. (Oops, sorry about that, this is not a political forum)

Such a great idea! I like the complexity of this statue and it reflects light in an amazing way.
