Kester's Throne of Weapons: British Museum's war art
"They shall beat their swords into plowshares" (Isaiah): Kester's "Throne of Weapons". This was made by Christavao Canhavato (Kester) in 2001 from weapons decommissioned after the end of the civil war in 1992. Made in Maputo, Mozambique, it is art ethically acquired by and displayed in the British Museum.
