Plowshare Made from Guns
I noticed a strange statue of a plowshare made from guns on D Street near Judiciary Square in Washington, DC.[Bob Fulton, 10/02/1998]
February 2008: Judiciary Square was remodeled, and the Plowshare got replaced by a fountain. It now sits behind a fence in a maintenance yard across the highway from DC's sewage treatment plant. September 2006: Phil Pasquini sent a photo of the sculpture, partially blocked by some construction going on. July 2006: Tipster Jason sent some info on the sculpture. Mennonite artist Esther Augsburger and her son Michael created the 16-ft. "Guns into Plowshares" in 1995 by melting together 3,000 guns collected by the Washington DC police department in an amnesty program.
