Icaro by Raffaella Benetti
Another enrapturing limited edition bronze sculpture by Italian artist Raffaella Benetti is Icaro. For the creation of this splendid piece, Benetti drew inspiration from Icarus, a character in ancient Greek mythology. According to his story, Icarus tried to fly to the sun with wings of wax. Blinded by hubris, he ignored the fact that his wings would melt before reaching the sun.
The artwork Icaro consists of a bronze figurine accompanied by two delicate wings lying behind it. It can be interpreted as the contemplation of a long journey full of obstacles to overcome.
