Once upon a time long long ago there was a half-bull, half-man monster that was called Minotaur. The Minotaur lived in the Island of crete and King Minos wanted to protect all his citizens from the voracious appetite of this Minotaur who ate everyone who was on the road. Since they could not kill the Minotaur, King Minos decided to lock him up in a place from which he could never leave.
So Minos called the best inventor on the island of Crete, a certain Labyrinth and asked him to build a maze so complicated that he Minotaur I could never get out of it. And Daedalus began to build with his son Icarus the labyrinth for the Minotaur. Father and son did their job well, they struggled to build alleyways in the labyrinth until they turned it into a dead end labyrinth. And when they finished the maze ...
- Dad, and now how are we going to get out of the maze? - He asked Icarus.
Labyrinth He then started looking for the exit from that labyrinth that he himself had created, but he could not find it. Of course the Minotaur I was never going to get out of there, but the problem was how they were going to get out. The problem was great, but not so great that the ingenious Daedalus could not solve it. He made some wax wings for himself and some for his son.
- We will fly with these wings that I have made- he said Labyrinth -But be careful and don't get too close to the sun because the wings could melt.
Thus they managed to get out of the labyrinth without exit that they had prepared to lock up the Minotaur. The plan was perfect, but Icarus He was not exactly an obedient son and when he gained confidence flying with his wax wings he wanted to get closer and closer to the sun. With the heat of the sun the wings of Icarus melted and fell into the sea, where immediately and to prevent him from drowning, an island emerged that today is called Icaria.
