Crescent Star Laptop Cases
Inspired by my extensive collection of both traditional and creative Kokeshi, blended with my love of nerd culture, I offer this design inspired by Rey, Ahsoka Tano, Princess Leia, Queen Amidala and Jyn Erso from Star Wars The Force Awakens, Star Wars Rebels and Clone Wars, Star Wars IV-VI, Star Wars I-III, and Rogue One in the style of Japanese Kokeshi dolls by myself, Danica Bergagnini.

The star and crescent symbol only became associated with Islam in the mid-20th century, in the national flags of various successor states of the Ottoman Empire. By the 1970s, this symbolism was embraced by movements of Arab nationalism or Islamism, such as the proposed Arab Islamic Republic (1974) and the American Nation of Islam (1973). The "Red Crescent" emblem was adopted by volunteers of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) as early as 1877 during the Russo-Turkish War; it was officially adopted in 1929.
