Invented by artist @cesarlopez1 and used as a symbol of peace.
I found this Escopetarra at Museo De Antioquia (Medellín Colombia).
2003, López founded the Battalion of Immediate Artistic Reaction which involves various musicians and activists seeking alternatives to the ever-present violence that has plagued Colombia over many years. The group mainly concentrates its efforts on the capital city of Bogotá.
López’s most well-known achievement is the Escopetarra, which are decommissioned AK-47s converted into guitars.
César López Escopetarra on display at the United Nations Headquarters.
Only a few dozen have been produced, but upon completion, López intends to give the guitars to high-profile musicians across the world, such as Juanes, Fito Páez, Bob Geldof and Manu Chao, and to political and religious leaders such as Kofi Annan
