Born Farrokh Bulsara on the East African island of Zanzibar, Freddie Mercury became
one of the world’s greatest rock music performers. His career as lead singer of the band
Queen spanned twenty years and together they sold over 150 million albums worldwide.
Innovator, showman, musician extraordinaire, he left a compelling legacy and had an
enormous influence on the next generation of rock performers.
Queen acquired the Montreux lakeside Mountain Recording Studios in 1978 and
Freddie’s strong links with the town continued until his death. He appreciated the
kindness and discretion of the townspeople and Montreux became a haven for him, his
second home and the setting for his final work.
A large bronze statue, standing 3 meters high, facing the lake, was unveiled five years
after Freddie's death by Montserrat Caballé and Freddie’s mother Jer. It was sculptured
by Irena Sedlecka, famous Czech artist now living in London. This is to certify that this
model is a 1/14th scale faithful reproduction of the original statue of Montreux. It is sold
on Queenonline and in the store "Bazar Suisse" in Montreux giving to this piece of art a
high collectable value for every fan. Made in epoxy resin, size is 21cm high.
Part of the price of this product is donated to The Mercury Phoenix Trust fighting aids worldwide.
