    Let´s take a look at the ancient so called earthwork "Labyrinths" that can be found encarved in rock or bigger on the ground. These "Labyrinths" can be found all over the earth.
    Just some examples:
    Knossos 200 BC


    Cornwall, England


    Madhya Pradesh, 250 a. C


    The "Man In The Maze" is a visual representation of the Tohono O'odham Indians belief in life, death and the life after death. The man at the top of the maze depicts birth. By following the pattern, beginning at the top, the figure goes through the maze encountering many turns and changes, as in life. As the journey continues, one aquires knowledge, strength and understanding. Nearing the end of the maze, one retreats to a small corner of the pattern before reaching the dark center of death and eternal life. Here one repents, cleanses and reflects back on all the wisdom gained. Finally, pure and in harmony with the world, death and eternal life are accepted


    Isle of Gotland in Sweden - Visby Trojaborg


    Labyrinth rock carving found at Meis, Galicia, Spain, possibly from the Atlantic Bronze Age (c. 1300–700 BC)


    Now let´s look at russias.


    Bolshoi Zayatsky Island


    These are all the different Labyrinths that have been found so far.

    Labyrinths are rare through out the world and are valuable archaeological monuments. In the world approximately 300 have been preserved . The 13 – 14 stone labyrinths found on Bolshoi Zayatsky Island belong to the best preserved ones found anywhere on the planet.
    These labyrinths are made of stones which have been laid on the surface of soil. Although just 1.35 kilometres square Bolshoi Zayatsky Island is actually one of the 6 large Solovetsky Islands. The island covered with boulders, moss and large bushes is renowned for its unique collection of Neolithic structures – stone labyrinths, barrows and ancient sanctuaries all dating back to 3,000 BC. The labyrinths are concentrated in a small area on the western part of the island. The diameter of the labyrinths is between six and twenty-four metres and they are for the most part formed of boulders set in a row. The rows are twisted in the form of a spiral. Often there are two spirals set one into another resembling two serpents with their heads in the middle looking at each other. Along the spiral there are intermittent wider heaps of stones and the ends of the spirals are widened as well. Although the labyrinths have five types of setting, each one of them has got one entrance, which also serves as an exit. Their purpose is a mystery, though it has been suggested that they can symbolise a border between our world and the underworld and that the labyrinth was used for specific rituals to help the souls of the deceased travel to another world. In the eastern part of the island there is another enormous complex of stone settings, which does not include any labyrinths.

    But there are more in russia. Not so long ago, in 1987, was found a rather unusual place, which is called the Arch. The settlement was discovered in the Chelyabinsk region archaeological Expedition. Close to it:


    And a Spiral or circular structure

    near Sochi Russia is the Kudepsta megalith. I would call it a bench of sorts.









    And a symbol on it.

    I thought you might like this link provided by Grace Cathedral of San Francisco.

    (There are two labyrinths at Grace, which I highly recommend to anyone visiting.)
