Knife Angel

The Knife Angel sculpture is now in Leeds. The Knife Angel is 27ft tall, made from over 100,000 seized blades and includes messages from families of victims of knife crime. 

The sculpture was created by the British Ironwork Centre to highlight the negative effects of violent behaviour and the need for change. Not only does the Angel act as a catalyst for turning the tide on violent and aggressive behaviour, but it is also acts as a beautiful memorial designed to celebrate those lives who have been lost through these violent and thoughtless actions.

Standing outside the Royal Armouries Museum, the Knife Angel is a part of an intensification month on knife crime which runs throughout February.
