Shattered Crown 1776


The Memo

Shattered Crown 1776 marks the DIY spirit and defiance of America's revolutionary era for a new generation who are faced with the question.

Will you keep your individuality or will you kneel before the bullhorn of conformity and cancel culture?

Let's not forget our republic was founded by rebels who did not fear the king nor complied with a despotic parliament.

The young revolutionaries had a simple rule for their new country. No person should have the absolute power to get in each other's face. Don't push people around but don't let people push you around. Freedom means you can march to the beat of your own drum. 

The mark of independence now belongs to you. Break the fake crowns of posers and authoritarians.

Be an individual. Live your life. 

Bow to none. 

Decoding The Mark

‘Shattered Crown 1776’ points to the US Constitution's founding principle of “Separation of Powers”. The crown  is based on the one worn by William the Conqueror, the 9th century king of England.

The bullet's trajectory shatters the old cycle of absolute rulers, splitting power into three branches of government. The Founders put in place a system of checks and balance to frustrate the ambitions of future autocrats (Article IV Section 4 of the US Constitution). 

A spark with thirteen rays—a nod to the thirteen colonies and the Age of Enlightenment—marks the ascent of liberty.

In Ben Franklin's words “It's a republic, if you can keep it.”  


“An elective despotism was not the government we fought for; but one in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among the several bodies of magistracy as that no one could transcend their legal limits without being effectually checked and restrained by the others.”

James Madison, Federalist 84, 1788
