Some stories are meant to last through the ages. The tale of King Minos, the Labyrinth, Daedalus and Icarus is most definitely one of them. 74louloute has illustrated Daedalus’s determination to escape from his prison with his son beautifully. The details are divine–Theseus with the thread; the Grecian designs on the walls, the broken room of the Minotaur; the bit of sky, taunting the captives with what they can’t have.
For those of you not familiar with the tale (or just want a chance to hear it again), I highly recommend this version by Nick Kozis. Click on films, then Icarus.
