This piece of sculpture shows the mythological figure of Icarus falling from the sky. Icarus and his father, Daedalus, escaped their captors and flew away with man made wings attached with wax. Icarus flew high into the sky, loving the flight, and flew too close to the sun. It is loosely sculpted to add to the movement and light of the work.
The patina colour on this bronze is blue to reflect the colour of the ocean Icarus falls into.
Shown here at an exhibition at Borde Hill Gardens and also in a private client’s garden.
This is a bronze cast sculpture, a limited edition of 9, it is 206 cm high and 73 cm wide and weighs approximately 70 kilos.
