Daedalus & Pasiphae

Daedalus was a legendary inventor and teacher (tutor). Among other things he created The Labyrinth which kept The Minotaur prisoner.

Myth

Deadalus built the Labyrinth in Crete at the behest of King Minos to contain the Minotaur which was eventually slain by Theseus.

Deadalus was imprisoned to stop him revealing the secrets of the Labyrinth. In order to escape the island, he created wings out of discarded feathers and wax. He made one set for himself and another for his son, Icarus and taught Icarus how to fly. Having warned his son not to fly to close to the sun as it might melt the wax or too close to the sea as it would soak the feathers, the pair flew away from their prison. However, Icarus ignored his fathers warnings and died as a result.
