##### Presentation Transcript

1. Creating a 7-CircuitRight-Handed Cretan Labyrinth 11 Steps in Designing Your Own Labyrinth

2. Instructions • Proceed through the following presentation to learn the 11 key steps in the creation of a right-handed Cretan (or Classical) Labyrinth

3. Desired Dimensions

4. Desired Dimensions cont. The following chart, which can be found in the associated spreadsheet with the appropriate values, displays the dimensions of your proposed labyrinth according to the entries in the excel file. The variables are defined on the previous slide.

5. Step 1 - Instructions • Construct a cross with the center at the coordinates displayed on the previous slide

6. Step 1 – Diagram

7. Step 2 - Instructions • Draw a right angle in each of the four quadrants • The arms of the right angles should be exactly one path length away from the center cross (both vertical and horizontal components)

8. Step 2 – Diagram

9. Step 3 - Instructions • Draw a circle with a diameter double that of the path width attaching the top of the cross to the top of the top right-hand corner right angle • Remove the portion of the circle obstructing the labyrinth path • Mark off one dot in each quadrant one path width horizontally and vertically from the center of the right angle

10. Step 3 – Diagram

11. Step 4 - Instructions • Starting at the left, right, and top side of the central circle, mark out seven positions, each a path width apart, on the left and right horizontal axis and the top vertical axis • These points are meant only to guide you in the drawing of the labyrinth

12. Step 4 – Diagram

13. Steps 5-11 - Instructions • Starting with the first right angle on the right side and the first dot on the left side, attach the two corresponding points with a circular shape • Work around the cross pattern moving counter-clockwise around the labyrinth in one direction and clockwise in the other • The labyrinth is completed when the right angle in the bottom right quadrant is connected to the bottom of the central cross
