Artist's description:

Icarus, from Greek mythology, flew too high and the sun melted the wax that held his wings together. He disobeyed his father's warnings and fell to his death. A Greek tragedy. But this image shows the exuberance of the human spirit rather than the tragic consequences. This fun, surreal image gives us contrast between the harsh, cold, reality of a monochromatic moonscape and the bright, living color of life. The concept was born out of my fascination of space travel and the human spirit. Great fun creating this image and a joy to look at!
