The Knife Angel
The Knife Angel, also known as The National Monument Against Violence and Aggression currently on display outside The Sage, Gateshead. The sculpture is made from over 100,000 seized blades, was specifically created to highlight the negative effects of violent behaviour whilst solidifying our critical need for social change. Not only does the Angel act as a catalyst for turning the tide on violent and aggressive behaviour, but it also acts a beautiful memorial designed to celebrate those lives who have been lost through these violent and thoughtless actions.
