The Classical™ 7 circuit labyrinth appeared on every continent in prehistory, from Peru to Siberia, India to Arizona, Africa to Scandinavia. Carbon dated to 1500 B.C.E. from a clay tablet in Syria, the design is probably 5,000 years old.
Where and how the Classical™ labyrinth symbol developed is shrouded in mystery, but it seems likely that the labyrinth evolved from other universal symbol sets, including the circle, spiral, cross and meander. By association with the story of Theseus, Ariadne and the Minotaur, the Classical™ labyrinth is also known as the Cretan labyrinth.
Our version includes a diamond-shaped ceremonial intersection detail, which may be used in myriad ways to enhance your walking experience - just add a flower vase, candle stand, etc. Models 27' and larger incorporate Velcro™ seams to break these large floor cloths into more easily handled sections. Our standard floor cloth shape is a square. Our portable labyrinth mats are printed with ink on professionally sewn premium poly duck canvas. Suitable for indoor and outdoor applications and may be hose washed. Prices include FedEx Ground shipping to the lower 48 states.
Poly Canvas: Durable 6 oz. polyester duck fabric has a weave similar to cotton canvas. Poly canvas is washable and suitable for use indoors or out. Poly canvas will not rot nor promote mildew growth.
Printed Lines: We print the lines of each labyrinth design in your selected color(s) using the latest eco-friendly heatset colorfast inks. Inks produce precise, long-lasting designs without the added weight of paints or other coatings. Our ink lines will not chip, crack or peel.
Sewing Details: Our Poly Canvas labyrinths are professionally sewn with double stitched seams and rolled double stitched hems. Poly Canvas floor cloths larger than 27' incorporate Velcro™ seams to break the labyrinth into more than one section to improve transportability. Our standard finished shape is a square. Our poly canvas units include brass grommets in the hem.
