Maria von Köhler[2] is a Swedish born sculptor. She currently splits her time residing between London and Los Angeles. Her work focuses on mechanisms of hero worship and propaganda.

Methods, materials, and processes[edit]

von Köhler's current work takes cues from a collage of culturally laden trinkets, ranging from Baroque bronzes, to Bobs Big Boy, to jolly-looking racist paraphernalia from the Deep South.[3]
