    Default Weapons furniture

    These are cool, in a scary kind of way.

    Furniture from weapons is a project started 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. The Peace Art Project Cambodia was a sculpture project turning weapons into art as expressions of peace. In Cambodia this is the most beautiful way to get rid of weapons - transform them in furniture. From these pictures this furniture doesn’t look to comfortable, but for a good cause they are excelent.

    Those are creepy. They look like they belong in a torture chamber. *shiver*

    It is a nice thought but the chair with the gun feet scares me. I'd always feel like I'd be shot if I sat in it.
    Into the sunrise. The sunset is sad to me….it only means the night is coming.

    Those scare the hell out of me. Looks like something straight out of a horror movie or something.
