Icarus Book Sculpture by wetcanvas Icarus Book Sculpture by wetcanvas
Icarus flies between the sun and sea in this book sculpture. The scorching sun beats down on his wax wings while the waves wait below him. The figure of Icarus is an illustration from the book. Wings, waves and sun have been created by hand. The book used is "Legends of Long Ago", 1947.

This one is temporally not for sale. It will be shown at a gallery show through December. If you have an interest in purchasing it, please let me know and I will reserve the book for you until the show ends. If in the US, I should be able to get it to you before the holidays.
