Not really sure about these snaps, but they are what they are

Knife Angel sculpture in Middlesbrough

From the Alfie Bradley website - 

The knife Angel has been created as a National monument against violence and aggression at the British Ironworks Centre in Oswestry and is a memorial to those whose lives have been affected by knife crime.  It is a 27ft high sculpture, which Alfie has designed and created single-handedly using over 100,000 knives surrendered and collected in nationwide amnesties in 2015/2016.  The angel began it's tour around the UK in 2018 when it was  housed outside of LIverpool Cathedral for December and January in order to raise awareness of the impact of knife crime on society, the victims and their families and friends

Some of the blades are engraved with the names of victims of knife crime too, very poignant - just hope it makes someone think

I think that description makes the image even more emotive.
