Mini Labyrinth Pictures

IMAGE HEAVY ENTRY BELOW CUT

After a disastrous attempt at salt dough labyrinths during a humid, rainy month, one of my coworkers (I have coworkers again! I has a jobs!) introduced me to the wonders to air-dry clay. I’ve been really into this new hobby.

Clockwise, big white one first: Chartres labyrinth, mirror of Erwin Reißmann’s (blogmymaze) inspired by Lea Goode-Harris’ Santa Rosa labyrinth, classical or Cretan labyrinth, my own zigzag spiral design.

Gossembrot labyrinth. Described in writing compilation by Sigmund Gossembrot in 1480, interpreted by Alexander Frei in Caerdroia magazine and illustrated by Hermann Kern.

Sometimes I look at these pictures, and the way my mind processes the lights and shadows gets weird so it looks to me as though I carved the walls in so the paths were embossed; actually I carved the paths, so the walls are the ones sticking out and up.
