After the 1998 war ended in Cambodia, the country’s government worked with officials from the European Union to destroy 125,000 weapons. A group called Draft, founded in 2003 by two Brits, got their hands on thousands of these weapons and started Peace Art Project Cambodia (PAPC) to turn these arms into art. The resulting sculptures feature AK barrels and handles, among other gun parts, and they are currently sold through The Art House gallery in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Prices start at around $600 for a basic Christmas tree shape and run over $10,000 for more complex works.
