It’s the knotted gun in New York created as a memorial to John Lennon.

Ian will understand when I say 'Big Iron' in meltdown.

I never realized until I looked it up that there are 31 copies of this sculpture. Knotted Gun.

I didn't know that it was dedicated to John Lennon. I just knew it was outside the UN building in NY, a very topical place at the moment.

Concrete building in Flanders, New York, made in the 1930's by a duck farmer would be my guess.

You're in the right county, there's something on the building that will identify it exactly.
Here's a clue, Alan Boyson.
