This is a contemporary sculpture based on early Celtic & Pictish rock-art carvings and depicts a Labyrinth design.
The labyrinth is an ancient symbol, often used during prayer or meditation that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. It represents a journey into our own centre and back out into the world. Labyrinths were also used by the Celts as protective symbols and traps for unwelcome spirits.
In the Celtic world, the labyrinth symbol has great meaning and features on many Pagan and Christian artworks. It is thought to represent rebirth, resurrection, evolution and progress.
A modern verse that often accompanies the labyrinth symbol:
With open heart and quiet mind. Approach this place and you will find, that shifting into labyrinth time, reveals anew your life’s design. Spiral around into the core, determine what your life is for. Then spiral out again and see, the mysteries revealed to thee.
