THE BRITISH MUSEUM

The British Museum acquired the Throne of Weapons in 2002 from an exhibition curated by Julia Fairrie at the Oxo Tower in London (Swords into Ploughshares: Transforming Arms into Art). Most recently the project has collaborated with Christian Aid to commission the artists of the Associação Núcleo de Arte to create a Tree of Life through TAE. This was installed in the Museum in February 2005. At the same time the Throne of Weapons began a nationwide tour of the United Kingdom.
