Art Made of Guns - PAPC Guns for Peace (GALLERY)

Over its long years of civil war, the Cambodian government has collected and destroyed more than 160,000 weapons across the country.

Some of the weapons which were not destroyed were donated to the PAPC. The PAPC (Peace Art Project Cambodia) is a project that was started by British artists Sasha Constable and Neil Wilford, both of which are small weapons specialist with the European Union.

The weapons were recycled (sculpted, forged or welded) into amazing works of art such as chairs, tables, bikes, animals and various other sculptures by student artists from the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh.
