An illustration of Icarus and Daedalus: Daedalus successfully flying away, Icarus flying too close to the sun and falling.
In Greek mythology, Daedalus and his son Icarus were imprisoned in the Labyrinth on the Island of Crete. Daedalus was a master craftsman who built two sets of wings from feathers and wax. He warned Icarus not to fly too close to the sun because it would melt the wax. While Daedalus successfully flew away from their prison, Icarus was so delighted by flight that he flew too close to the sun. His wings fell apart and he fell into the sea and drowned.

As a child the story of Daedalus and Icarus really captured my imagination, rather like this design does. Very nicely done!

There is a wonderful feeling of exuberant, swooping movement and a sense of the plummeting disaster in your expressive design!
A graceful and beautiful design. Try opening it up for a multi - yard view to get a sense of how it would look on a larger project - very powerful!
