From the concept to the development
is the way through the structure of the labyrinth. Ariadne was a goddess from pre-Grecian times. Her thread symbolises the journey of life from birth to death as well as transformation in every sense.

The labyrinth consisting of 7 paths is the original one, over 5000 years old, and probably comes from Syria, arriving in modern times via Greek mythology (Ariadne and Theseus). By comparison with the younger maze, the labyrinth has only one entrance. There is only one possible way and it leads to the centre, from where it leads back to the entrance, which then becomes the exit.
