Following on from their controversial UNHATE campaign (recap here), Benetton reveal the next level in the campaign – a peace dove sculpture made from 20,000 discharged bullet cartridges, gathered from war zones all over the world. The statue will be donated to the capital of Libya, Tripoli, on December 24th – Libyan Independence Day.

“The official handing-over of the dove is the UNHATE Foundation’s first act, both concrete and symbolic. Our aim in creating the Foundation is to oppose the culture of hate. It seeks to be a leader and driving force behind the desire for participation and change felt by citizens of the world, especially young people.”
– Alessandro Benetton, Benetton Group’s executive deputy chairman
