About Unicursal Labyrinths
There are three main categories for unicursal labyrinths:
Labyrinths have only one winding path that leads from the entrance of the design to the center of the labyrinth then back to the entrance. Labyrinths frequently have designated stopping points along the way for prayer or meditation.
Both mazes and labyrinths can be created with many different materials. They can be cut into the ground such as turf Labyrinths, built with walls and rooms, or simply drawn into sand, on sidewalks or driveways with chalk, built with mirrors, rocks, corn stalks, hay bales, books or with different colored paving stones, string, sticks or paving tiles such as bricks. Permanent labyrinth are created using concrete, marble or granite. Many semi-permanent labyrinths are grown using flowers, dwarf shrubs and other hedges or other foliage planted in a labyrinth pattern and maintained by gardeners. Labyrinths can also be drawn or painted on the outside walls of churches, frequently near the entrance ways.
Some people make labyrinths by sewing fabrics and carpet materials together. Many stone labyrinths can be found in Lapland, Finland and Sweden.
Labyrinths and mazes created out of crops or otherwise temporary and seasonal materials are frequently promoted as seasonal tourist attractions. Two good examples of crop mazes are the Dole Plantation Pineapple maze in Hawaii, and the Carter County Fairgrounds Corn Maze in Kentucky.
Labyrinths and mazes can also be printed or drawn on to be followed by a pencil or fingertip such as with the images on this web site. Make a bird seed maze or labyrinth and watch the birds flitter as they eat the delicious treat.
