About the Non-Violence Art Project

Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd created the bronze sculpture "Non-Violence" in 1985 as an homage to John Lennon, who was shot in New York in December of 1980. This sculpture, a gun disarmed, now stands in 16 places around the world as a symbol of peace and non-violence.

The non-profit organization Non-Violence Project Foundation has made its goal to promote world peace through educational initiatives. As part of the Non-Violence Art Project, world-famous personalities such as Yoko Ono and Muhammad Ali create their own versions of the knotted-barrel revolver. A portion of the proceeds from these sculptures benefits the initiative.

About Patrizia Gucci

Patrizia Gucci, the great-granddaughter of famous fashion designer Guccio Gucci, has made a name for herself as a successful artist, designer, and author. From Vienna to Florence to Budapest, her paintings appear in exhibitions throughout all of Europe.

As part of the Non-Violence Art Project, Gucci takes a stand against violence and offers a message of encouragement to young people. For her version of the knotted pistol, she drew inspiration from Tuscany. “The butterfly is a symbol of freedom, the flowers represent nature,” she says. “Everything is in harmony here, and a sense of mutual respect prevails.”

The base of the sculpture is painted gold. On it, there is a bird carrying an olive branch, a storied and instantly recognizable messenger of peace.
Patrizia Gucci was born in London in 1963. In the early 90s, she entered into the family business started by her grandfather. After that, she launched her own fashion line, Patti Patti G, for the Asian market. Gucci is also a painter whose work has been exhibited throughout Europe and the Middle East. She has published multiple books including Simplicity (2000), Single (2004), and Charme: Diary of a Quasi Irresistible Seductress (2006). She now lives and works in Geneva.
