Searching for ideas about the Flight of Icarus story, i came across this postal stamp of the pre flight of icarus. It depicts the moment of the wings creation which is seldom seen in works of art about the story. I call it Wings of a Dream. Inspired by the song Flight of Icarus by Iron Maiden ("His eyes seem so glazed, as he flys on the wings of a dream" lyric from song).
