Ralph Ziman’s mural in Venice Beach entitled “Yarned and Dangerous” 

Part of an extensive series of works, this mural deals with the international arms trade and Africa: a trade that for the most part only goes in one direction.  Into Africa.

I had six Zimbabwean artists use traditional African beads and wire to  manufacture several hundred replica bead/guns like AK-47s, as well as several replica bead/general purpose machine guns (GPMGs), along with the ammunition. 
In response to the guns sent into that culture, the mural represents an aesthetic, anti-lethal cultural response, a visual export out of Africa.   And the bead/guns themselves, manufactured in Africa, are currently being shipped to the USA and Europe.” X
