The other day I was in a washroom where the hand dryer was made by a company called Hubris ltd. The logo was a small silhouette of a winged man, which piqued my curiosity. After a while, the penny dropped and I realised the significance of it. Any takers?

The winged man was Icarus.
"Brueghel's Icarus is a 14th century painting about Icarus, the son of Daedalus. Daedalus had created wax wings for the boy and for himself but warned Icarus not to fly too close to the sun. But in a moment of hubris, Icarus did fly too close to the sun and his wings did melt."
