Hand carved square knossos maze necklace.

In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth was an elaborate, confusing structure designed for King Minos of Knossos on Crete to contain the ferocious half-man/half-bull known as the Minotaur. The monster eventually killed by the hero Theseus. The labyrinth is viewed as a symbol of change, coming of age and new responsabilty.


The single-path (unicursal) seven-course "Classical" design without branching or dead ends became associated with the Labyrinth on coins as early as 430 BC.
