Bird of Peace Statue (Serdara Jola Piletića, Podgorica) – this statue, located outside the Plada shopping mall (and within walking distance of the Millennium Bridge at the country’s capital, Podgorica), is made of 500 old guns (that were voluntarily handed over after the 1990s Balkan Wars ended), along with the seats around it. Unveiled in 2005, this was part of the “Weapons in Art” initiative by the local government in collaboration with UNDP (U.N. Development Programme). Both local Montenegrin artists, as well as those from Serbia, Macedonia, and Bosnia-Hercegovina contributed to this artwork.
