Note: Larger picture HERE in case you want to count the knives.

This is the Knife Angel, a 27-foot angel sculpture made from 100,000 knives collected by 41 different police forces across the UK, as a tribute to victims of knife crimes. Obviously, along with the Iron Throne, that is not something you want falling on top of you.

The 27-foot sculpture made out of 100,000 knives could be placed on the fourth plinth in London's Trafalgar Square in tribute to victims of knife crime.


The sculpture, named "Knife Angel," was created in Oswestry, Shropshire, by the British Ironwork Centre. It took two years to build.

The campaign, "Save a Life, Surrender Your Knife," and the statue aims to raise awareness of the growing issue of knife crime throughout the UK.

Me? I've committed tons of knife crimes, but only accidentally and only against myself playing the knife game between my fingers. And, okay, opening a few unruly potato chip bags. You see this scar here, just below my throat? "Cooler Ranch Doritos?" Those sons of bitches almost got me.

Thanks to Gabe, who just poked me with the rusty top of a tuna can. Not cool, bro, I haven't had a tetanus shot since I was six.
