Daedalus & Icarus

Daedalus & Icarus

Deadalus was a mythic figure, an inventor and architect during the Minoan era. Minoas, the king of Crete, assigned Daedalus to build many important buildings including the legendary Labyrinth. However, Daedalus and his son Icarus were prisoners. To escape his prison, Daedalus created wings for him and his son and they flew away. Icarus did not listen to the advice of his father and he flew close to the sun, melting his wings and falling in the sea, where he was drowned. Daedalus buried his son on the island that was named Icaria, in the Icarian Sea.
