Artist's description:

Icarus was so named because of the legend.
- Icarus, don’t go too near to the sun. For your wings will melt, they’ll melt my darling son…
The way back home - This piece was done in the near my breakthrough to the "Alternate Skies" series. I felt somehow that I would be traveling a long, lonely road in my art journey. It also felt like a journey into the warmth of light and hope.
And yet, someone is calling me not to go too near the burning sun - the beauty of snowflakes would melt under the heat and it's beauty diminishes.

A beautiful piece for those journeying their way towards the warmth of light... :-)

* There are a few more photos showing this piece in a home setting (In different lighting).
