 A statue in the shape of a knotted gun was unveiled today to commemorate the 
20th anniversary of John Lennon's death.
 
 The statue - a bronze revolver with its barrel tied in a knot - was designed 
in 1980 in the wake of the Beatle star's murder.
 
 Dr Michael Nobel, head of the Nobel Family Society and chairman of the 
Non-Violence Foundation, unveiled the statue at Cavern Walks Shopping Centre 
in Liverpool, near the site of the original Cavern Club.
 
 It will stand a few feet away from where The Beatles are also immortalised 
in bronze.
 
 The knotted gun was designed by Carl Frederick Reutersward, who allowed the 
Non-Violence Foundation, an international youth-orientated campaign group, to 
use it as its symbol.
 
 Unveiling the statue today, Dr Nobel said: "John Lennon used his music to 
promote peace and non-violence.
 
 "It is entirely appropriate and fitting that the statue should be unveiled 
in Liverpool where John Lennon was born and began his career."
 
 The Non-Violence Foundation was established in Sweden in 1993 and has 
offices in Miami, Brazil, Switzerland and London.
 
 Twenty identical statues are sited across the world, including one outside 
the United Nations building in New York.
