A sculpture made out of decommissioned weapons powerfully symbolizes an end to war in Mozambique.

What happened to the millions of guns left at the end of Mozambique's civil war in 1992? Many were exchanged for tools & sewing machines in an innovative 'swords into ploughshares' scheme, and others were broken up and turned into dramatic sculptures by Mozambican artists.
This film talks to the artists behind one sculpture called 'The Tree of Life' and follows its journey from Southern Africa to the British Museum in London.

Made in association with Christian Aid for BBC's Africa Lives season, and broadcast on BBC4. Camera: Al Waterson. Original film is 29 minutes long.
