Not sure if this is an original because it's in excellent condition. There's a little niche in the back with the face of a tiny angel. This captivated me. What does it mean and why did the sculptor put it there. If this is original it's remarkable that the Greeks had the technology to cast such a huge bronze sculpture.

This was one of the coolest things to see at the Valley of the Temples to know that we could do bronze status in the centuries BC and it looks amazing

The statue of the fallen Icarus is a beautifull bronze but most people do not know the story: the legend says that the temples were build on the spot where Icarus came down after he flew too high and his wings melted...It could be valued much more, now it only attract some children playing around it.

This statue represents Icaro is in front of the principal temple from the valley, and we understood that it was made in Toscana.
