Being the master craftsman that Deadalus was he constructs a pair of wings out of wax and feathers, for both him and his son Icarus to escape from Labyrinth. After constructing the wings and giving them to Icarus he warns him: to not fly too close towards the sun, because the wax would melt on the wings, and send Icarus into the ocean where he would drown.
