Papercraft AK-47

Craft & Design Paper Crafts


This paper model of an AK-47 assault rifle really catches my eye:

“For a new art project, the designer Martin Postler has investigated the history, the aesthetics and the lethal seductiveness of the Kalashnikov. He has freed the AK-47 from its terrible capacity to injure and kill by deconstructing it into a paper model construction set. At the end of the construction process each person can decide if they would like to hang their own AK-47 on the wall, paint it, customize it with stickers or simply burn it. Then ultimately this AK-47 thankfully remains a piece of paper.”

It’s $30 and available for order online. – [via] Link.

    With the amount of gun violence going on, do you really need to continue to push items involving guns???

  2. Petrides says:

    I think that a weapon designed over 60 years ago is old enough to be appreciated for its aesthetic appeal. Not to mention that subversion is a more powerful force for change than direct opposition.

    What kind of delusional individual think that a paper gun will cause people to commit violence? Do you have so little control over your own psyche that you think inanimate objects make you do things?

  4. David says:

    Gun violence is caused by the same thing as knife violence and pointy-stick violence:
    as the T-shirt says: guns don’t kill people, I do

    With the amount of people that are obese, do you really need to continue to push items involving food???
    /or maybe we should blame the silverware

    Anyone who thinks guns cause gun violence have obviously never handled a real gun let alone shot one. Besides as Britain and Australia have shown – silly ideas like banning guns just increase gun violence. As Heinlein said, “An armed society is a polite society”

    I wouldn’t mind having one even though I have a couple real ones. I could give it a nice paint job and hang it on the wall.

    The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution’s Bill of Rights declares a well-regulated militia as “being necessary to the security of a free State” and prohibits infringement of “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.”
