Icarus by Jean-Christophe

To end the serie about Icarus sculptures and engravings, here is the contemporary version of this Icarus or fallen angel myth, that I sculpted from a large block of blue alabaster, in 2014. With contrasted texture for the broken wing, and hair, the color of the stone is a great match with the sky, and the pale white clouds of the natural stone is also a nice link with the feathers and sky clouds.

You can see the various steps of the sculpture, starting from the rough stone, on my gay-sculpture  website 'workshop' part.
