Above the door of the former Banckruptcy Chamber (now the sitting room of the English Quarter), a winged youth is falling to his death. He is Icarus. His father Daedalus made wings of wax and feathers to escape from the island where he and his son were imprisoned. But Icarus flew too close to the sun, the wax melted and he plunged into the sea. In the 17th century, this was where bankruptcies of other unfortunates were processed.
