Daedalus and Icarus mosaic

I transfer pictures from several visits to these mosaics to sub-galleries in the Zeugma gallery to put some order in them. This is one such gallery. You will see my technique and equipment (and opinion on what looks best) changes over the years, as do the displays.

The story is very complicated, check the Zeugma site if you want to know all. Ignore the error message that may pop up.

From the Enc. Britt. about Daedalus: (Greek: “Skillfully Wrought”), mythical Greek architect and sculptor, who was said to have built, among other things, the paradigmatic Labyrinth forKing Minos of Crete. Daedalus fell out of favour with Minos and was imprisoned; he fashioned wings of wax and feathers for himself and for his son Icarus and escaped to Sicily. Icarus, however, flew too near the Sun, and his wings melted; he fell into the sea and drowned. The island on which his body was washed ashore was later named Icaria.
