For centuries, the labyrinth has been a symbol of search and discovery – and of mystery. It is an enigmatic, magical and powerful tool of transformation.
Ancient mythology tells a story about the intricate system of corridors
where the cruel Minotaur, part man, part bull, lived. He was defeated by Theseus, who, after killing the monster, managed to escape the labyrinth only because of a spool of thread given to him by Ariadne. The unspooled thread showed him the way out. This is why, to this day, Ariadne's thread represents the solution to a difficult problem, and the labyrinth the place where man confronts his fear.
