The word "labyrinth" probably derives from the medieval English word "mæs", which means delusion or delusion. There is a similar term called “labyrinth”, which dates back to the 14th century, from the Latin “labyrinthus” and from the Greek “labýrinthos”, which expresses a building with intricate passages.
The adventure of the labyrinth has a meaning of symbolic death, a journey into the underworld, a journey into the afterlife. The way inland also symbolizes the way down at the same time and the victorious exit from the labyrinth can be compared to re-emerging from the surface of the sea.

In the labyrinth there is an almost perfect materialization of the initiation process. At the center of the labyrinth, the beginning is only with its inner reality, it meets itself, a divine principle, a mythological monster or anything else that can be represented by a "center". In any case, the center also means the place and the possibility of a knowledge so fundamental as to require a radical change of direction.

At the center, death and rebirth take place. The way to the center of the labyrinth symbolizes the way to the underworld, where the return to mother Earth is connected with the hope of a rebirth. The maze seems to take the form of a symbolic exchange in which death and life are the doubling of the same reality.

The labyrinth, as the most ancient cults show, is actually the graphic representation of the life cycle; it is an image of the supernatural and underworld world where higher mysteries and truths are hidden. A world towards which we necessarily walk.
