The 6 Circuit Jericho Labyrinth

On occasion of the labyrinth congress at Hofkirchen i. M. I participated in a workshop in the atelier of Prof. Gerhard Wünsche, described: “The creator of the art labyrinth of transformation invites in his extraordinary atelier. The participants form a finger labyrinth in casting technique (concrete) under his instructions.”
His introduction was essentially as follows: Art is nice, however, makes a lot of work, said already Karl Valentin. And: Just laugh, then make.
Of course he gave enough assistance by the manufacture of our “pieces of art”, he gripped himself to clay, gypsum and rolling pin. But we had to decide ourselves what kind of labyrinth we wanted to perform.

I wanted to make something else than the well-known 7 circuit classical labyrinth, and laboriously remembered the path sequence for the 6 circuit labyrinth which I had already described in this blog earlier (see related posts). Since only with the help of the path sequence 3-2-1-6-5-4-7 I could draw the layout of  the labyrinth.
We produced a gypsum negative from our clay model from which many unique pieces can be fabricated. Some weeks ago the ceramic artist Gabriele Schubert threw and burnt this tile by using my negative workpiece:
