‘Der Fall Daidalos und Ikaros’ (‘The Case of Daedalus and Icarus’)

The old Greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus is a well-known one. The ancient Greek adage about not flying too close to the sun is a classic tale about the dangers of growing too confident.

The story also touches on the dangers of flying, as Icarus flies too high and ultimately plummets to his death. As such, this symbol about the risks of taking to the air seems like a strange thing to exhibit in an airport.
