A Minor Detail

The Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder created one of the myth's most famous portrayals, called Landscape with the Fall of Icarus. Check it out: Icarus' fall is shown as just a minor event in an otherwise very busy scene. Can you find his legs poking out of the water? [Fall of Icarus by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, 1558]
