Don't fly too close to the sun.

Icarus is part of a series inspired by the legendary Greek myths. Icarus' father, Daedalus, makes wings for Icarus but warns him not to fly too close to the sun as they are bound together with wax. Icarus ignores this advice and plummets to his death. Each feather is hand made and 'dipped' in newspaper, with Icarus' remains in the back ground. Wire spells out the advice Icarus ignored.

Materials: Paper, wire, ink and newspaper.
