Icarus – Gabriel Picart

There are many inspirational art works based on the Icarus myth.  This is Gabriel Picart’s.


"Never regret thy fall,
O Icarus of the fearless flight
For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light."
~ Oscar Wilde

Hat tip Terry V, who shared the artist’s Oscar Wilde quote.
