Labyrinths

In our lives we can find a lot of labyrinths. A very popular way to decorate cathedrals, during the medieval Christendom was to draw a labyrinth on the floor or in the ceiling…


It is a good example, the famous labyrinth of Chartres 's cathedral. As you see in the image, it is a classic labyrinth.  
The labyrinth which is on the right, correspond to the Matua Dukes' palace. This drawing is on the ceiling of a room. 

        We find as well in huge and rich gardeners. This way to cut the bushes was born in England in XII, as a result, the maces or mazes (garden labyrinths) is a fastantic way to decorate a garden.
