This oversized Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver with a knotted barrel standing outside Malmö Central Station is a sculpture by the Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd.  He created this large bronze piece, known as Non-Violence, following the murders of John Lennon and Bob Crane and the sculpture has since become the symbol of The Non-Violence Project, a nonprofit organization promoting social change with violence prevention education programs.

P.S. apologies to anyone who came here expecting ice creams on a stick rather than guns – ice cream would normally be my preference, but this is a striking sculpture with a strong message that I wanted to share.
