furniture from weapons: cambodian peace art project

The Peace Art Project Cambodia was a sculpture project changing weapons into art as expressions of peace. After more than 30 years of civil war, ending in 1998, the Cambodian gouvernment destroyed 125,000 weapons across the country. In this time a small arms specialist with the European Union, and British artist Sasha Constable, saw an opportunity, and decided to create The Peace Art Project Cambodia (PAPC) in November 2003. Together with Mark Soloman, Joe Rush, and Tobi Pullman, thousands of these firearms have been turned into fantastic looking macabre sculpture and furniture.
