I was inspired by the old Greek myth of Daedalus and his son Icarus. Daedalus created two sets of wings made of bird feathers and wax, one for his son and one for himself. Even though Daedalus warned Icarus of flying too high into the sun, but Icarus didn’t take precaution. According to this myth Icarus flew too close to the sun, and the heat melted the wax which made his artificial wings fall apart.
His invention was Daedalus’ “Dream of Flight”.
In doing research I didn’t find specifically how the wings were built other than Daedalus used wax to hold the feathers together (like how the wings were attatched to the body, etc.). So I kinda designed my own version of Daedalus’ wings that feature a leather base and leather straps that may be held together by what kind of resembles belt buckles.
