Icarus Had A Sister

Artists Masters & Munn have won the global 'Rising Star Award' at this year's 3d Print Show (at London, Paris and New York) for their sculpture 'Icarus had a Sister'.

Nine years ago, UK artists Andre Masters and CJ Munn had a vision to create a work of art based on the engaging premise, “What if the mythical Icarus had a sister?” Their original design included a graceful lifecast shape of a woman, the couple’s absolute specialty. But another element proved a serious barrier to full flight — more than 200 metallic feathers affixed to the lifecast shape. Masters, explained “I wanted to depict in a minimalist sculpture the fragility of the female form as she’s balancing on this precipice waiting to take her initial flight but also her strength, which is conveyed with her powerful wings.”
