Daedalus, the great artist and inventor


According to Greek mythology, Deadalus was the greatest painter, architect and sculptor in ancient Athens and all primitive works of architecture and sculpture were attributed to him. Before him, all sculptures were wooden or made of clay. But Daedalus came and gave shape to the sculptures so graceful, that people thought they were real people, ready to move, so they fastened them with chains to capture them .
