Having sealed bird feathers with wax, he made wings for himself and his son, and both flew out of prison. Icarus pregebreg warning father and climbed close to the sun. The hot rays melted the wax, the wings broke up and, falling into the sea, the young man died in the waves. The sculptor depicts the moment when Daedalus warns his son about a possible danger.
