It's the statue. Quite a striking cover in my opinion. :)

Definetely the statue


It's a long hard struggle

But you can always depend on me

And if you're ever in trouble

You know where I will be

The first time I saw the cover I thought it was himself. But if you look closely you can see its his statue

So it might asswel be his statue. They should forbid nonactive arguments.

BTW the statue sucks. Freddie's head doesn't look like Freddie


I don't know if you realise, but making a statue, let alone a life-like one, is very difficult. Give the sculptor SOME credit!

John has got such hairstyle after 1992 year.

And besides - read the MIH sleeve. ''Scuplture by Irena Sedlecka''.... Means something, doesn't?

Yeah it's difficult, if you haven't got talent.


Shut up! It's a great statue.

I remember when the album first came out and I watched the cover on the poster of a record store, I got the chills.

I like both versions of this sleeve - sunrise and sunset. It has special deep meaning.

Wow. I can't believe all this time that I've had Made In Heaven I always thought it was really Freddie. I just read this post and then looked at the cover. I never noticed that before.

It's okay, it took me awhile as well. I only really noticed it when I looked at an album cover which was a lot lighter so the statue actually looked like bronze. My CD cover is a lot darker so you can't see the bronziness as well and it looks like a silhouette really.
It made a lot of sense when I realised it was the statue, though :-)

The statue isn't actually anywhere near the background shown, although both are in Montreux. I think that the statue was photographed in some random field and then superimposed on the background.
