Originally sculpted on a piece of driftwood found just of the coast of Crete this was the first in a series of relief wall sculptures depicting the boy who flew too close to the sun.

"The scoring sun so close
Softened the fragrant wax that bound his wings;
The wax melted; his waving arms were bare;
Unfledged, they had no purchase on the air,
And calling to his father as he fell,
The boy was swallowed in the blue sea's swell.."
