Picture - Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono Ono interprets Lennon peace symbol Yoko Ono has thrown her support behind the Non-Violence Project and unveiled her interpretation of the organisation's iconic knotted gun symbol in memory of her late husband, John Lennon. The Non-Violence Project's signature logo, a gun with a knotted barrel, was created by Carl Fredrik Reutersward as a symbol of peace after the Beatles legend was gunned down in New York in December, 1980. Now Ono has joined the campaign and given the Swedish artist's widely-recognised symbol her own twist. The Japanese artist says, While creating my interpretation of the knotted gun symbol, I thought back to Imagine and the words 'living as one' as both John and I were devoted to the idea that we can work together to achieve world peace and eliminate the violence and the suffering in this world. As I have often said a dream we dream alone is just a dream - a dream we dream together is reality. Ono's artwork was unveiled as part of the Knot-Violence Exhibition Tour, which features inspired sculptures interpreted by celebrities and youths around the world. The exhibition will begin in Mexico, with stops in Brazil, the U.S., the U.K., Italy, South Africa, China and Sweden. (MT/WN) USA - 19.04.11
