Walt Creel of Birmingham, Alabama uses a gun for a much different purpose than what it was made for. He artistically uses the deadly weapon to create ironically amazing wildlife art pieces. His project is called 'De-Weaponizing The Gun' and is an attempt to take away from the weapon's destructive power.

Walt Creel feels that society features guns all in the same manner, and states that his main goal is to "manipulate the gun into a tool of creation and use it in a way that removed it from its original purpose, to deweaponize it." Stats for Bullet Hole Artworks Trending: Older & Chilly
