Seven Circuit Classical Labyrinth

While walking my daughter to school this morning I noticed the conditions were just right for tracing a labyrinth in the snow. Started out with the idea of making a 5 circuit but the initial circle was pretty big and so it became a 7 circuit. I’m awfully fond of the rose pattern found at the centre of the Chartres Labyrinth so made a replicate which became a 5 petal pattern. This is all done without the aid of tools, just walking and drawing with the body and my new bog boots! The circles are “drawn” in reference to an imagined centre, a very peculiar experience.
