In Greek Mythology, the Athenian Daedalus, was a famous architect, inventor, craftsman and most skillful artificer, so skillful that he was said to have invented images. Among his inventions and creations were the wooden cow he constructed for the queen Pasiphae, the Labyrinth at Knossos, and artificial wings for himself and his son Icarus to fly to safety from the tower in which they were held captive. To escape, Daedalus built wings for himself and Icarus. They successfully flew from Crete, but Icarus’ wings melted when he flew too close to the sun. The Labyrinth on Crete in which the Minotaur was kept was also created by the artificer Daedalus.
