Gun Art In Chatsworth House

    Nick was exploring Chatsworth House, a palatial house in Derbyshire, England, when he noticed an interesting sculpture tucked away in a corner that looked out of place among the grand oil paintings, murals and tapestries.

    The sculpture is of a Bren Light Machine Gun magazine. It was sculptured from solid granite. The little plaque in front of it simply said “Please Do Not Touch”.

    I love the quiet simplicity of this sculpture. It is very unlike modern pop gun art. I have emailed the Chatsworth collections department to find out its history.
