THE FALL OF ICARUS ?

"In Greek mythology, Icarus (the Latin spelling, conventionally adopted in English; Íkaros, Etruscan: Vikare 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 constructed by his father. He ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and fell to his death. The myth shares thematic similarities with that of Phaethon, and is often depicted in art."
