Knife Angel Lands In Liverpool. Built out of knives handed in to police or confiscated following a criminal activity. Don’t miss the video
The Knife Angel has moved from Hull City centre and heading for Coventry arriving March 14. It will continue its journey round the country from then on.
This 27ft sculpture landed outside Liverpool’s Cathedral in the heart of the city in November and was there until Thursday January 31.
More than 100,000 knives, turned over to the Police during confiscations and amnesties have been used to create the massive sculpture. It includes, machetes, swords, cleavers as well as kitchen knives.
Crowds arrived at the Cathedral to check out the impressive statue. #KnifeAngel was created by Alfie Bradley at the British Ironwork Centre, Oswestry in Shropshire.
