Kokeshi | Freddie, I Want To Break Free
Ships From Copenhagen, Denmark
A parody of the long running British soap, “Coronation Street”, Freddie Mercury dressed as “Bet Lynch” for the video “I Want to Break Free” by Queen. While considered satirical in the band’s native UK, it was a source of controversy within selected media outlets at the time, however, today the song and video is a global anthem of empowerment and liberty.

SKETCH.INC FOR LUCIE KAAS
The figures are pieces of art, made by specialized craftsmen – and women! It takes 43 careful processes of wood work and hand-painted design, so slight imperfections may be present. These are not defects but features that make every piece unique.
The Lucie Kaas Kokeshi universe celebrates pioneers, icons, and trailblazers to remind us of who we are and where we are going. Some modern versions have small messages within, but in Lucie Kaas's rendition, the Kokeshi Figures are the message.
