Object Description
A plaque illustrating Icarus and his father constructing wings in their attempt to escape the labyrinth of Knossos. The plaque is highlighted in green to suggest copper oxidization and aging, but this piece is a replica. On the back is a short description of the image.
Theresa Sam Tzakis donated a number of items including a small record collection. While the records are not included in the catalogue, they are accompanied by various other items (almost all of which were replicas).
