Icarus and the Sun
Icarus is a beautiful fairy tale of Greek Mythology where the Son of Daedalus dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Daedalus was imprisoned by King Minos of Crete within the walls of his own invention, the Labyrinth. But the great craftsman’s genius would not suffer captivity. He made two pairs of wings by adhering feathers to a wooden frame with wax. Giving one pair to his son, he cautioned him that flying too near the sun would cause the wax to melt. But Icarus became ecstatic with the ability to fly and forgot his father’s warning. The feathers came loose and he plunged to his death in the sea.
