Daedalus and Icarus (1778-1779)
Antonio Canova (1757-1822), marble statue, Venice (Italy), Correr Museum

Maze, son of Eupalamus (or of Eufemio or according to others of Mezione), was a man of extraordinary genius so much so that it is said that he was a pupil of the godHermesor according to others of the goddess Athena. He enjoyed extraordinary fame throughout the known world due to his skills as an architect, sculptor and inventor.

He lived in Athens, where he had an established workshop. Many apprentices worked with him and his nephew was among them Acale (also known as Talo or Perdice), son of his sister. Acale, already demonstrated incredible skill at the age of twelve and was so brilliant that one day while he was on the beach with his companions he noticed a fishbone (according to others the jaw of a snake) which gave him the idea to build a saw with iron. His was the invention of the compass to draw circles; the potter's wheel and others so much that Daedalus, worried that his nephew was darkening his fame, decided to kill him.

One morning he went with Acale to the Acropolis, to the roof of the Temple of Athena and pushed him down.

The goddess Athena, seeing the scene, took pity on Acale and decided to support him in the air and transformed him into a partridge from which the name of Perdice derives.

Daedalus, ancient sculpture

This is how Ovid narrates in Metamorphoses, VIII, 236-259: "While Daedalus was placing the body of the unfortunate Icarus in the tomb, a talkative partridge, hidden among the leafy undergrowth, spotted him, and rejoiced at the show flapping his wings and showing his joy with singing.
This bird, never seen before, had recently become such a perpetual reproach for you, Daedalus.
In fact, his sister, unaware of destiny, had entrusted to him, to instruct him, her own son (Acale), a boy of only twelve years, but well disposed to learn. the model to engrave sharp teeth on the sharp iron, thus inventing the saw. (...) Daedalus pushed by envy threw him from the sacred rock of Minerva, pretending a misfortune. But Pallas, protector of the arts, covering him with feathers during the fall supported him and changed him into a bird. It still retained its name, but the vigor of its wits, once ready, passed into the wings and legs.
In fact, this bird cannot hover its body up high nor make its nest in the branches or on high tops; it flutters down to earth, laying its eggs in the hedges, and, mindful of the ancient fall, it fears flights that are too high ».

Daedalus tried to make believe that Acates had accidentally fallen but was not believed. A long trial followed and in the end, given his fame, he was sentenced to exile.

So he went to Crete, and presented himself to the king Minos, offering him his services. The king was happy to host him and began to entrust him with various tasks.

In that timePoseidonhe had sent to King Minos a white bull of incredible beauty to be sacrificed to him because Minos had prayed to the god of the sea to send him a sign of the predilection he had towards him compared to his brothers who wanted to reign with him on Crete. Poseidon granted his request but Minos, struck by the beauty of the bull, did not have the heart to kill him and in his place he had another bull killed. Poseidon, angered by the insult immediately, made him fall madly in love Pasiphae, wife of Minos, of the white bull. The woman, in the grip of the most blind love, turned to Daedalus so that he could build her a wooden cow in which she could hide in order to have the much desired embrace. Daedalus built a cow so similar that the bull was misled and joined Persiphae who was hiding inside the cow.

Theseus kills the Monotaur, Attic amphora 5th cent. B.C.

From this union was born the Minotaur, being with the head of a bull and the body of a man. King Minos, frightened and horrified by that monstrous looking child, ordered Daedalus to build such a complex labyrinth, so that whoever entered it could no longer find the exit and imprisoned the Minotaur inside. Minotaur ate human flesh, Minos periodically provided him with slaves and Athenian children (which the same city gave him as a tribute following a defeat).

At that time the hero These came to Creteto fight the Minotaur. Arianna, daughter of King Minos and Parsifae, fell in love with the young man and decided to help him in the enterprise by asking Daedalus to show her a way to get out of the labyrinth. Daedalus then provided her with a ball of wool that had to be unwound as you entered the labyrinth. Theseus then entered, killed the Minotaur and managed to get out thanks to the ball of yarn. Once out of the labyrinth, he fled with Ariadne who then abandoned on the island of Naxos.

When Minos discovered that Theseus had succeeded in his enterprise thanks to the help of Daedalus, he imprisoned in the labyrinth the same Daedalus together with his son Icarus (1) whom he had had from Naucrates, one of Minos' slaves. Daedalus, at first he was desperate but after a short time he had a brilliant idea: to build two pairs of wings to escape from the labyrinth. Thus he began to weave feathers by welding the smaller ones with wax.

The fall of Icarus, Pompeian fresco

Before taking off, Daedalus ordered his son not to fly nor too high as the heat of the sun would melt the wax that held the weaves together, nor too low as the sea waves could wet the wings weighing them down. But Icarus, once in flight, taken by the thrill of this extraordinary experience, did not take into account his father's advice and flew so high that the wax melted and rushed into the sea. Daedalus, realizing that his son was not following him, went back and the only thing he saw were feathers that floated. Having recovered his son's body, Daedalus took him to a nearby island which he named Icaria, in honor of Icarus.

Thus Ovid narrates in Metamorphoses, VIII, 183-235: «(...) Daedalus, bored with Crete, and stung by the nostalgia of his native place, did not suffer long the imprisonment imposed on him. "The sea and the earth may preclude me - he said - but the sky is certainly free: we will go away. May Minos possess everything he wishes but he will certainly not be master of the air" He then turned his mind to limbs until the hour unknown, and renewed nature; in fact, he arranged the feathers according to a given order, then, with some thread, he stopped the middle parts, then fixed the lower ends with wax and bent them, bending them slightly so as to imitate real birds. (...) After giving the final touch to his work, the architect hovered his body on the two wings, and remained suspended in the agitated air. Then he instructed his son by telling him: "keep the middle way or Icarus, I recommend; so if you go low the wave will weigh down the feathers, if too high, the sun will burn them .. Fly between one and the other: take the road that I will show you ". (...) And they had already left the island of Samos on the left, and passed Delos and Paros; on the right was already Lebinto and Calimno fertile with honey.

The fall of Icarus (1636-1638)
Jacob Peter Gowy, from a sketch by P. P. Rubens, oil on canvas, Museo del Prado, Madrid (Spain)

«When the boy began to enjoy the daring flight and abandoned his guide; attracted by the desire of heaven, he held a higher path. The proximity of the burning sky softened the perfumed wax that held the feathers together, and he, beating his bare arms, without paddling, found no hold that could support him in the air. His mouth as he invoked his father's name, it was closed by the blue sea that took its name from him ... the unhappy father now no longer a father, said: "Icaro Icaro, where are you? Where will I look for you, Icaro?" He kept calling Icarus but when he saw the feathers scattered on the waves he cursed his art. Then he set up a sepulcher, from the name of the deceased, that land was called Icaria ».

After burying his son Daedalus he resumed flying until he decided to stop in Cuma, Italy, near Naples, where he built a splendid temple in honor of the god Apollo and at whose foot he laid his wings.

Minos that there was no peace for the escape of Daedalus. He had set up a large fleet with which he looked for him everywhere, taking with him a Triton shell and a thread, promising, in every place where he stopped, a great reward to anyone who knew how to pass the thread between the coils of the shell. Minos knew that no one would be able to solve the problem, except Daedalus.

In the meantime, Daedalus had taken refuge in Camico in Sicily, as a guest of King Cocalo.

Minos arrived in Camico, proposed the dilemma also to Cocale who asked for help from Daedalus. Daedalus, attached the thread to an ant and introduced it into the shell at the end of which he had placed a drop of honey. When the king brought the shell to Minos, he immediately understood that the author was Daedalus and demanded that it be delivered to the king. But both the king and his daughters did not want to deprive themselves of Daedalus' company because he gladdened their days by building incredible toys. So it was then that while Minos was bathing, the young princesses poured boiling water into the tub, killing him. They then justified his death by attributing it to his distraction, saying that he had accidentally fallen into a tub of boiling water (2).

Minos's corpse was then returned to the Cretans saying that the king tripping over a carpet, had fallen into a cauldron of boiling water. Legend has it that Minos for his moral integrity and his righteousness was hired by Zeus as the supreme judge of Hades together with his enemy Aeacus and his brother Radamanto.

Gustave Doré (1832 - 1883)

Dante in Hell (V, 5-15) represents him in this way:
"Stavvi Minos, horribly, and growls,
Examine the faults in the entrance,
Judge and send, according to which he clings.
I say that when the ill-born soul
He comes before him, everyone confesses;
And that connoisseur of sins
He sees what place of Hell he is from it;
Cignesi with the tail many times,
Although degrees it wants to be put down.
Always, before him, there are many;
They go each other to judgment;
They say and hear and then they are down times ».

Daedalus lived several more years in Sicily which he left to join Iolaus (3), grandson of Heracles, in Sardinia (Italy) where he continued his profession. The many of the works he helped build were called dedalic constructions or dedalea(4).

Dr. Maria Giovanna Davoli

(1) According to others because he had discovered that he had helped his wife Pasiphae to mate with the white bull.
(2) Another version has it that it was Daedalus who passed a pipe on the roof of the bathroom by pouring boiling water or pitch into it.
(3) Son of Ificle (half-brother of Heracles) Iolaus was the grandson of Heracles. He helped his uncle in the fight against the Lernaean Hydra, providing him with the inflamed trunks with which to burn the necks of the monster so that his head would not be reborn. According to some, he also participated in the expedition of the Argonauts and in the hunt for the Calydonian boar. After the death of Heracles, he allied himself with Theseus in the fight against Eurystheus then migrated to Sardinia where he died.

Daedalus and Icarus among inventions, labyrinths and wings of feathers and wax

The events related to Daedalus and his son Icaro are among the best known of those of Greek mythology.

Maze is Icarus they are two figures of Greek mythology closely related to each other: the first is in fact the father of the second.

Daedalus (in Greek Δαίδαλος, Dаidalos), son of Metione, was originally from Athens and lived there working as a sculptor. He fled to Crete after a bad blood event that saw him involved (apparently he killed his nephew and assistant Talo because he was jealous of the latter's skill) he was welcomed by the king Minos in his palace and later married a slave of the sovereign, Naucrates, madly in love with its beauty and craftsmanship.

The latter bore him a son: Icarus (Icarus in Latin, Ίκαρος in Greek).

During the years in which he was a "guest" in Crete, the sculptor Daedalus also showed great talents in the architectural field and proved himself to be a brilliant "inventor" several times.

He has been credited with the invention of the Daidala sculpture, and of the Agalmata, the statues with open eyes and movable limbs representing divinities.

His was then the idea of ​​building the wooden cow that allowed Pasiphae, the wife of King Minos, to mate with the sacred bull sent to the island by the god Poseidon. From this female-animal coupling was born the aberration called Minotaur, a monster with the body of a man and the head of a bull.

Such a hideous and feral creature had to be hidden from the sight of the people, so Minos ordered Daedalus to design and build a very intricate complex of rooms, corridors and galleries in which to imprison it: the Athenian obeyed and linked his name to that of the Crete labyrinth which he designed, built and for which he is still remembered today.

Later the inventor was imprisoned within his own creation together with his son. Few are the sources that mention this fact as confused are the reasons why King Minos decided to lock Daedalus in his labyrinth.

It is said that he did it to protect the secrets of that place (of which Daedalus obviously knew) or to punish him for helping Theseus (in cahoots with Ariadne) to kill his monstrous stepson and find a way to escape.

Closed and lost in that dead end "maze" father and son had to squeeze their brains out to solve their problematic situation.

It was the mature inventor who came up with a brilliant idea: he created two pairs of wings with feathers and wax with which to fly away from the labyrinth with his son.

But once in the sky, with wings welded to his arms and back by solidified wax and fervent by the unprecedented intoxication of flight, Icarus forgot his father's warnings and ended up finding himself too high and close to the sun: the wax softened and melted due to the heat of the star, the wings flaked off and the young man fell into the sea, under the helpless gaze of Daedalus, dying.

Here too the sources are few and the versions different. Most argue that Daedalus never managed to retrieve the corpse of his son whose soul therefore could never be accepted into the kingdom of Hades. Ovid, on the other hand, claims that the man managed to recover Icarus' body from the waves and give him a burial.

Escaped from the labyrinth Daedalus later also fled from Crete and found refuge in Sicily with King Cocalo.

Minos, stubborn in wanting to capture him, went to Sicily and asked that the fugitive be delivered to him. But while he was a guest of Cocalo he was killed in an attack hatched by Daedalus himself with the help of the king's daughters.

Now a free man Dedalo remained in Sicily for several years before going to live permanently in Sardinia together with Iolaus, grandson of Heracles.

Among the numerous citations of this myth we like to point out the intotolato sculptural group Daedalus and Icarus preserved today at the Correr Museum in Venice and built in 1779 by the famous Antonio Canova: two singularly unstable figures who find their balance in the whole of the artistic composition.
