"Black Icarus" by Andrew Logan

This is yet another amazing sculpture at the American Visionary Art Museum. "Black Icarus" was unveiled here in 2006, created by Andrew Logan. The life-sized body is bronze, and the wings are comprised not of wax like those of our Greek hero with the disobedient streak, but are made of stained glass and a mosaic of mirrors. Icarus dangles above the curving central staircase so you can see him from all three floors.

I honestly didn't realize that taking photos inside the museum isn't allowed, so I was glad I shot these before the security guard told me I was Breaking The Rules.
