Icarus

Instructions from Daedalus to his son: ‘Fly not too low nor too high. The sea’s dampness may clog your wings, and the sun’s heat can melt them.’

This is a warning against over-ambition. It reminds me of the fun logo on Muti-Gin’s colourful bar-trailer: Take it easy … but take it!

This sculpture is the first of more expressive work to follow. I normally work quite ‘styled’ and almost forgot how enjoyable it is to work looser and with more passion.

This sculpture is available in life size (roughly 1,8 meters in length), medium size (around 600 mm in length), medium/small (around 250 mm in length) and also in maquette size.
