This piece has been a journey with plenty of dreams accompanying it. It is based on the beautiful labyrinth at Chartres cathedral in France.
A labyrinth is an archetype with which we can have a direct experience. We can walk it or trace it with our fingers or visually. It is a metaphor for life's journey and a symbol that creates a sacred space which leads us into its heart, then back out again along the same path.
Although you are able to cross the lines at any time, you are compelled to follow the meandering path to the centre and back again.
The Labyrinth represents both a journey to your own centre and back out again into the world... at the same time as acting as a metaphor for the path walked through life.
Unlike a maze, you can’t get lost in a Labyrinth. Rather, you are offered a path that weaves back and forth, in and out, until it ends in a central circular area. Here, one pauses to reflect before departing as one came, carrying back wisdom gained on the inbound journey.
The labyrinth is a wonderful tool for contemplation and reflection, offering an opening into the inner world.
