The son of inventor Daedalus had wings made of wax and feathers, which allowed him to fly. His father warned Icarus not to fly too close to the sun, but in Icarus’ complacency and hubris, he flew too high, and his wings melted. He plummeted into the sea, where he drowned. © The Argillet Collection.
