The word "labyrinth" comes from the Greek labyrinthos and was originally used to describe the Minoan structure used to contain the Minotaur, a half-man, half-bull slain by Theseus. The daughter of Minos, Ariadne, gave Theseus a ball of thread to use within the labyrinth.While the term labyrinth is often used interchangeably with maze, but the modern definition is a bit stricter. A labyrinth is a single path, while a maze contains complex branching passages.The full flowering of the medieval labyrinth design came about during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries with the grand pavement labyrinths of the gothic cathedrals, most notably Chartres Cathedral. These labyrinths were supposed to have originated in a symbolical allusion to the Holy City, and certain prayers and devotions accompanied the devotee's walking of their intricate mazes.Our hand-held mazes can be used for similar meditations as your fingers traverse the pathways.We are happy to create a custom design for you.
