"The oldest existing remains of a maze are those of the immense Egyptian labyrinth built 2000 years before Christ, and first recorded by Herodotus. In the middle ages the floor mazes in medieval cathedrals were, it is said, designed for the faithful who followed the course on their knees - an enactment of a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Found all over the world and in many different cultures, the only safe assumption is that the maze is a symbol of man's travails and destiny. This particular maze can either be considered a decorative object to be hung on the wall, or used as a puzzle to test your patience."
