9780709055082: Mazes and Labyrinths
Vom Verlag:

The labyrinth has held an important place in human consciousness for millennia. This book on mazes and labyrinths explores the maze in all its varied aspects. Mazes and labyrinths are the meeting-place of symbolism, mythology, ritual, architecture and art. Turf mazes are a part of our national heritage, and yet we don't know why they were made or the purposes of their ancient creators. Leading earth mysteries researcher Nigel Pennick investigates the significance of these mysterious pathways and asks if they evolved as an expression of the meaning of life: a tangled web to which there is ultimately a solution. Today, the labyrinth is undergoing a major renaissance of renewed interest. Here is a complete account of ancient rock labyrinth and turf mazes, pavement and church labyrinths, puzzle hedge mazes and modern innovations in Britain and on the Continent.
