Rifles into a Heart
Item type: Poster Date: 1960 = 1989 Description: Poster by Masuteru Aoba of Japan featuring two crossed rifles forming a heart shape. Originally part of an exhibition put on in the early 1980s by the Co-operative Retail Service, London Region political committee. The exhibition contained posters from every part of the globe and was intended to show that people across the world were “united in opposing the continued insane nuclear arms race.” Most of the posters from the original exhibition were donated to The Peace Museum. This particular poster is also on permanent display at The Peace Museum’s exhibition “A Farewell to Arms?” at the Royal Armouries in Leeds.
