About the Maze Pattern
The Maze or Greek Key pattern is believed to originate in the Eastern Mediterranean but it has also been found on Egyptian tombs, ancient Chinese buildings and sculptures, and Mayan carvings. The motif is made up of a long, continuous line that repeatedly folds back on itself and symbolizes infinity or the eternal flow of things.
This particular design is derived from the west face of the Marigold stone, an unusual early medieval pillar stone in Carndonagh, Co. Donegal. Why rural Donegal? Well during the early middle ages, Irish monastic schools were celebrated throughout Europe for their teaching and students came from all over the continent to study not only biblical subjects but also classical Greek and Roman literature so it is not so surprising that this Greek key or Maze pattern can be found in carvings of the time.
