Acrylic on canvas 50" x 40"
Icarus and his father, Daedalus were imprisoned on an island in the famous Greek myth. Daedalus, an inventor, created wings for them from feathers and beeswax. He warned his young son not to fly too close to the sun. But when they leapt from the cliff, the boy was so excited he forgot the warning. The beeswax melted and his father could only watch as his son plunged into the sea. He's often used as an example not to be too ambitious... but if he hadn't tried to fly so high, we'd never have heard about him, more than a thousand years on.
