“Code.” – Spyglass Place Labyrinth – Vancouver

The Honeysuckle has really grown since I first began building this Stone Labyrinth.

A Maintenance visit in recent days revealed that eyeing from ground level, the Spyglass Place Labyrinth is almost hidden with an air of something Ancient.

Yet, from Cambie Bridge above, Spyglass is still easily seen…

“Thank-You to @HiMYSYeD for the “Unofficial Labyrinth” in our local Fairmount Park splash-pad..!

Good to see a little Maze-Runner enjoying it in the Sunshine.

Sometimes the BEST things in #ParkTO break the rules a little. 🤫”

“Theseus and The Minnowtaur” – Katie Brookoff Cartoons

I’d be fine getting lost in this maze.

A post shared by Katie Brookoff (@katiebcartoons) on

There is a simplexity to this drawing by Katie Brookoff.

Numerous Classic Labyrinths have been found along the shores of many islands, continents, seas and rivers.

At High Tide, the fish came in and may have swam up and into the Labyrinth.

As Low Tide gradually approached, any number of fish may have remained submerged in the inclined pockets of water within the lanes of the Labyrinth, yet without any direct watery way of escape.

People presumably returned at Low Tide, picked up their catch, went home and ate well that day.

There is a reasonable assumption that for thousands of years, these simple three and seven lane Classic Stone Labyrinths, created upon inclined slopes to the water, employing knowledge of tidal timings, were Humanity’s original sustainable fish farms.

I tend to agree with this hypothesis.

To illustrate this concept, here is a simple three lane classic Labyrinth that I made last week, upon the naturescaped Habitat Island in Vancouver’s False Creek, just opposite the location of where I recently completed the Vancouver Public Labyrinth.

Evidenced by the darker wet and lighter coloured dry stones in these images…

Tides in False Creek may rise and fall as much as 15 feet in one day!

Now, all we need is for False Creek to be clean enough again.

Who knows?

Maybe then we might catch a Minnowtaur or two!

Under an overcast Vancouver sky,

This is what the Vancouver Public Labyrinth looks like…

“All love.” – Julie Ratcliff – Chalk Labyrinth – Creekside Park – Vancouver

Mazes may have Minotaurs.

Labyrinths have Love.

I almost always place a Heart in or near the Centre of any Labyrinth I chalk or paint or make.

Including this one I chalked in-between Science World and Creekside Park along the False Creek Seawall in Vancouver…

All love. #loveisintheair #sidewalkchalk #springtimewalks #handinhand #vancity #yvr

“Lovely commute today!” – Cathleen Gingrich – Heart Chalk Labyrinth – Science World – Vancouver

I have been by this pocket square along the seawall south from Science World many times.

This location is almost impossible to not pass by and look at the view.

Perhaps two weeks ago, someone had outlined a giant heart using roses and stems. It was wonderful and instantly became a must-photograph destination spot.

The flowers wilted away, yet the stems remained in place. People still came, stood in the middle, and snapped a photo or few.

Walking by again a few days ago, I noticed the stems were bunched into a pile and the Heart outline was lost.

Rather than lose that heart outline forever, I pulled out some of the chalk I still had with me, and quickly chalked this Labyrinth.

I didn’t think too much of it.

Passing by since I chalked it, I’ve noticed children walking, rather, running this little Heart Chalk Labyrinth.

ANd now it’s on instagram too!

❤️ !
