Fashioned to resemble Britain’s royal coat of arms, Queen’s iconic crest logo was designed by art-school graduate Freddie Mercury before his band had even released its first album. Beneath the wings of a phoenix, the figures of two lions, a crab and two fairies represent the bandmembers’ zodiac signs arranged around a royal crown encircled by the letter Q. Lost wax casting recreates the cover art of Queen’s breakthrough album in painstaking detail in an objet d’art fit for rock royalty.
