Napoleon

Product 19 of 19

Napoleon Bonaparte, born on Corse as Napoleone Buonaparte, went down in the history books as a French general and self-designated King. He did lead many campaigns and made himself a name as a great strategist. Several reforms, among other things justice, he placed a base for a modern civil law.

His person is quite controversial discussed until these days. On one side, it is said, he wanted to unify Europe and create a new modern one at the same time. Others point to the amount of campaigns, mostly named the Russian Campaign where numberless poeple had to lose their lives. He introduced the Code Civil but is called a power-hungry and cynical tyrant.

We do not want to judge at this point, this can be done by historians or other experts.
We did ask ourselves which role this fairytale figure by Kösen could play in a children's room. It characterizes a strong personality, one which risks something and might win or loose. A personality which is characterized by two sides and shows that an event can be interpreted in different ways - according to the eye of the beholder.
With this figure children get the possibility to transfer their emotions. Ambivalence and the confrontation with "Right" and "Wrong", "Pro" and "Con", and "Good" and "Harm" can be transferred and processed in a playing manner. Playing-off oppositions becomes possible without feeling to be in the wrong. The child just plays.
Or it takes the figure for what it is: A plush toy wearing a uniform.
