Shows people's desire to learn
Shows people's curiosity
To escape the rage of King Minos, Daedalus has constructed two pairs of wings (for himself and Icarus) from feathers and wax
Daedalus told his son not to fly too close to the the water so his wings don't get wet, and to the sun, so the wax doesn't melt
Icarus, overwhelmed by flying, did not listen to his father, and flied too close to the sun
The wax on the wings melted, and Icarus fell to death in the ocean
Daedalus made it safely to Cisily safely
Icarus's body was carried by a wave to an unknown island
Heracles found it and buried the body, naming the island after Icarus
There is a rock on the island to this day, showing the grave of Icarus
The Myth (Continuation, Yet Again)
Icarus was the son of Daedalus, a famous artist, architect and sculptor
Daudalus was exiled to the island of Crete for the crime of killing his nephew and competitor, Talus
Daedalus was put in service of King Minos
He had a son, Icarus, with a slave of King Minos, Naucrate
King Minos had Daedalus make the labyrinth to imprison the Minotaur (a beast with the body of a man, and the head of a bull)
Each year, people were sent to the labyrinth for the Minotaur to eat
Icarus and Daedalus
Theseus, the King of Athens, decided to attempt to kill the Minotaur
Theseus fell in love with Ariadne, the daughter of King Minos
Ariadne decided to help Theseus
Daedalus told her the secret of the labyrinth, and she repeated it to Theseus
Theseus defeated the Minotaur, and escaped from the labyrinth
King Minos was enraged at Daedalus, and threatened that he will lock up Daedalus and Icarus in the labyrinth
