Do you love the story of Icarus? Then this is the perfect piece for you. This artwork captures all of your favorite moments from the tale, including when he flies too close to the sun and falls into the sea. It’s a great way to remember one of history’s most famous stories.

In Greek mythology, Icarus was only a minor character, but his timely story is still widely known today. He was actually the son of among the most resourceful men in ancient Greece, Daedalus. His mother, Hippias, loved him very much, but Daedalus often abandoned him. However, when the islands were under threat of a Persian attack, Hippias took her son with her, and him and his brother, Ascanius, later helped by sailed with the Greeks and fought against the Persians at the Battle of Marathon.

During this battle, the Persians suffered a huge defeat, yet they still retook the city of Marathon. With the Persian army decimated and divided in half, the Greeks formed the city of Acropolis and put up a strong defense. Meanwhile, Icarus' half-sister, Brueghel, remained in the city with her two little boys, Lapeteus and Aristomenes. In order to gain time for the Persians to retreat, the Greeks provided the two monkeys with food and water so that they could carry on with their own lives. When the Persian army returned, the two monkeys took the food they had received and left the empty containers behind on the battlefield.

As legend has it, the two monkeys stayed in the house, which was guarded by a Trojan prince named Dido. Later on, Dido's husband, Metellus, was being attacked by pirates. Dido, who feared the pirates, killed Metellus and brought herself and the elder Brueghel, along with the remaining turtles to safety. In gratitude, Dido gave the young turtles the name of the city of Icyon and sent them to live at the Acropolis for the rest of their lives. The legend says that the two turtles lived in peace for many years until a shepherd found them and decided to entertain his friends by letting them feed him and his animals.
