Here Micallef depicts Icarus, son of Daedalus, who dared to fly to close to the sun, with wings of wax and feather, to his own demise. Micallef creates a sense of urgency and movement through a flurry of swift, expressive brushstrokes depicting the face and wings of the young boy. A beautiful work from the artist.
