LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM.- British artist Lucy Wood unveils her latest artwork "Map 272183" at the Metropolitan Police Gun Crime Conference in London 02 December, 2004. The artwork measures 8 by 6.26 metres and is made up of a sizeable portion of the three thousand and eighty five weapons that were handed in under the Gun Amnesty of 2003 and destroyed.

The sculpture is made entirely of pieces of firearms handed in during a gun amnesty. It was due to be shown at the Metropolitan Police’s training centre at Hendon, north London, where a conference was being staged today to help reduce gun crime in the city. The title od the sculptureis in reference to the Ordnance Survey map of the 32 boroughs of London.
