We moved from the meandering to the linear, from the complex to the singular, from the curved and sensual to the straight and narrow. Consequently our thinking became shallow and unable to grasp the depth of meaning the labyrinthine symbolic world held for us.

The complex patterns enfolded with these ancient designs are calling us to reclaim the lost and forgotten parts of ourselves.
