As the legend illustrates, the figure at the top of the maze
indicates birth. Following the winding path to the center, one encounters many
turns and variations indicative of life choices. On life’s journey, one obtains
strength, knowledge and comprehension. The maze depicts a quest for
balance as we move toward our dreams and objectives.
As one approaches the end of the maze, they are able to
reflect on their past life and seek purity before advancing to the
center. According to the legend, the Sun God is there to escort us to
eternal life in a new world.
