One Single Impression - Icarus

 01
“Icarus Unbound” © 20100609 by Vanessa V. Kilmer, paper and wax on foam board



Icarus flew into the eye of passion and came,
undone…unbound
plummeting into the womb of the sea
the embrace of the earth
reborn to soar in ecstasy
and burn in the fire of inspiration.

    You summarized the true essence of the story in so few words.
    Have a lovely weekend,

  4. It really does have the feel of Icarus, both the upward striving and the catastrophic fall. Beautifully done, Nessa.

  14. Interesting new angle about Icarus. I never thought of him as reborn. I would love to see your photo in color, too.
