Icarus


Icarus by Maurice Lambert (1901-1964) stands nearly 30" high and is one of an edition of 6. I was rather taken with this figure. Despite the slightly cartoonish face, the whole is rather sexy I think and made me wonder if Icarus as a possible subject for sexy art hasn't been slightly underepresented (Lord Leighton of course one notable exception). The patina and shine on the body just makes you want to stroke it (the bronze that is). Clearly the figure has been neutered, which is a little unusual, but I think actually all the sexier for it.
