Icarus 100 Artist - Jan Brown AM
Title - Icarus
Medium - Bronze

Funded By - artsACT
Commissioned - 2009

Icarus
These four bronze figures are inspired by the ancient Greek myth of Icarus. In this story Icarus' father, Daedalus, created wings made from feathers and wax for himself and his son to flee from captivity on the island of Crete. Icarus is warned by his father not to fly too close to the sun or the sea. However, exhilarated by the experience of flight Icarus flies too high, his waxen wings melt and he falls to his death. Brown's sculpture encourages sympathy with Icarus' unbridled exuberance and an acceptance of its ineveitable tragic consequences.
