With melting wax and loosened strings
 Sunk hapless Icarus on unfaithful wings;
Headlong he rushed through the affrighted air,
 With limbs distorted and dishevelled hair;
His scattered plumage danced upon the wave,
 And sorrowing Nereids decked his watery grave;
O'er his pale corpse their pearly sea-flowers shed,
 And strewed with crimson moss his marble bed;
Struck in their coral towers the passing bell,
 And wide in ocean tolled his echoing knell.
— Charles Darwin

In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. The main story told about Icarus is his attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. He ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and the melting wax caused him to fall into the sea where he drowned.

  • Bouguereau The Story Book Framed Canvas
    overstock.com
    A man with a deep social conscience, Bouguereau painted nearly 700 pieces throughout his extraordinarily productive artistic life. Like many painters of the second half of the 19th century, Bouguereau made a careful study of form and technique, immersing himself in both classical sculpture and painting. Before beginning a painting he would master the history of his subject and complete numerous sketches. In his lifetime, Bouguereau achieved a remarkable level of public acclaim and financial success as a French Academic painter. Bouguereau's command of the human form in the classical style is evident in both composition and use of color. The identity of the little girl in this portrait is unknown, however, she has appeared in at least one other of his paintings. The Story Book includes a sculpted frame with gentle engravings designed to emphasize the art. The frames also include a wooden liner with a subtle filet. The frame color is a gold on gold with woodsy undertones on both the liner and the second inside tier of the frame. Our canvas fine art replicas surpass most reproductions available in the market today. Each canvas is recreated in amazing detail so that even the subtlest brushstroke becomes vibrant. Artist-grade canvas is hand-stretched over wooden stretcher bars by skilled artisans and hand coated with protectants to insure archival properties.
