Something's Missing

.
Icarus 2

Not long ago I had a post with a detail from Igor Mitoraj's Icarus, a sculpture in the Old Post Office Plaza. It is a brother to the same artist's Eros Bendato in Citygarden.

Here's another detail of the same work. You can guess about the meaning if you know the Greek myth of Icarus (or click this link). Classic legend or not, do you ever have a day when you feel like this? I do.

At first I thought of bad headache...

No kidding! The legend of Icarus is very interesting and up-to-date. Who flies high falls far.

Wonderful lighting around that sculpture, you captured it beautifully. And oh yes all too often I know what it's like to feel half your brains are missing.

On those headache days I wish I could remove that part of my head. But losing one's head is never a good idea, even when that head contains a serious ache...just ask Marie Antoinette.
