House in a Maze

Dragon maze.............................(maze.jpg)

We were very intrigued by pictures of this tiny house in the middle of a maze. Turns out the labyrinth was created from corn in Cordes-sur-Ciel, France, by Isabelle de Beaufort and Bernard Ramus, aka Labyrinthus, in 1999.

De Beautfort and Ramus have been creating giant mazes since 1996 – including Le Labyrinthe de Grimm in Alsace, Le Monde des Plantes Magiciennes in Merville, and Le Labyrinthe de Plage à Puteaux.

Some have been large, some tiny, some permanent, some temporary. They've attracted some three million visitors, and given a new lease of life to an ancient tradition. RM

    Amazing! The photos remind me of scenes from the book Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.

  • I suppose having a house in the middle of a big maze like that is one way of saying, “Um, I’m not sure we really want your company after all.”

    Certainly an adventure just to get to the front door.

Any comments?
