Henrik Lundqvist is now a Peace Ambassador for The Non-Violence Project Foundation


The Non-Violence Project Foundation (NVPF) announces two new Peace Ambassadors - New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist and HC Frölunda's Joel Lundqvist.

"We hope to bring more knowledge to young people and spread Non-Violence Projects important message about non-violence by becoming Ambassadors for Peace."

The Non-Violence Project Foundation's symbol and sculpture the knotted gun was created as a memorial by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd after his friend John Lennon was killed in New York 1980. It's today one of the world's most famous symbols for peace and non-violence. The sculpture Non-Violence was placed outside the United Nations head-quarters in New York 30 years ago and is placed at 30 other strategic places around the world.

The foundation is proud to have Ambassadors as Yoko Ono, Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Ringo Starr, Dustin Johnson, Gianluigi Buffon, Muhammed Ali supporting the important message of peace and non-violence. Each Ambassador has designed and named their own version of the knotted gun sculpture. Yoko Ono's sculpture is named "Imagine" and decorated with clouds on a blue sky.

Today the foundation officially announces the two brothers and hockey players Henrik Lundqvist (New York Rangers) and Joel Lundqvist (HC Frölunda) as new ambassadors for The Non-Violence Project Foundation. Their sculptures are naturally inspired by ice hockey and named "830 13 for Peace" after their birth town Åre, sport resort in northern part of Sweden.

The Ambassador sculptures are available in hand-painted limited editions; 19 cm edition 499, 40 cm edition 99 and 100cm edition 8.
