Goncalo-Mabunda-Chair-Recycled-Arms

Sculptor Gonçalo Mabunda recycles arms recovered from 16 years of civil war in his homeland, Mozambique. Talk about true upcycling – creating works of beauty from arguably the most disgraceful of man's inventions! Gonçalo is exhibiting at London's Jack Bell Gallery until August 10th 2013.
