Icarus
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia,

In Greek mythology, Icarus (the Latin spelling, conventionally adopted in English; Greek: Ἴκαρος, Íkaros, Etruscan: Vikare[1]) 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 to his death.


My depiction..
Is abit different.

Icarus after his death, he pleaded to the heavens, to let him be an angel, even though he disobeyed his final instructions. When they say "honor thy father and mother".
He's a fallen angel, but when "God is all forgiving" shouldn't it be forgiven for such a simple mis-deed?

-Note
I'm not a religious person. I found the idea interesting and did it in pastels.
Afterall, it's a bit..contradictory, would he get what he wished?
Would he perish, again, into hell?

Interesting nonetheless.
