Icarus Featured Daedalus Print

Icarus

"Vintage engraving from 1879 of ancinet greek art showing Icarus. In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. The main story told about Icarus is his attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. He ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and the melting wax caused him to fall to his death."

WRAF Mess Hut at Cranwell, WW1 Featured Daedalus Print

WRAF Mess Hut at Cranwell, WW1

Scene inside the WRAF (Women's Royal Air Force) Mess Hut at Cranwell, probably during the First World War. The Royal Naval Air Service Central Training Establishment Cranwell was commissioned on 1 April 1916, under the command of Commodore Godfrey M. Paine. Cranwell later became known as HMS Daedalus. In addition to flying training and airship operations, a Boys Training Wing was also established at Cranwell. Its task was to train Naval ratings as air mechanics and riggers. With the amalgamation of the RNAS and the Royal Flying Corps on 1 April 1918, ownership of Cranwell was placed in the hands of the RAF. The former Naval base title was replaced by the designation Royal Air Force Station Cranwell. Date: c.1918

MAZES - HADSTOCK Photograph of the maze on the gravestone of the artist, Michael Aryton Featured Daedalus Print

MAZES - HADSTOCK Photograph of the maze on the gravestone of the artist, Michael Aryton

MAZES - HADSTOCK
Photograph of the maze on the gravestone of the artist, Michael Aryton (who died in 1975), in the burial g rounds of St. Botolph's church, Hadstock. This maze, with raised walls, is constructed in copper. It design recalls Aryton's interest in the story of Daedalus, the Athenian craftsman who is supposed to have designed the maze in Crete, wherein the terrible man-bull (the Minotaur) was imprisoned. Daedalus is famed for the wings he constructed, from feathers and wax, to enable him and his son, Icarus, to escape from the island of Crete. Since the Aryton maze is designed to resemble the shape of a butterfly's wing, it is reasonable to assume that it was intended to recall this idea of flight. A colour image of the Hadstock maze is in the Charles Walker archives
