Finalizing the Labyrinth
Now we have all elements we need (see related posts 2, below) and are able to finalize the Chartres type labyrinth in the Man-in-the-Maze style. These elements are the auxiliary figure and the seed pattern (fig. 1).
The auxiliary figure has 90 spokes and 22 rings. In it’s interior there are two rings that are not used for the labyrinth. The reason for this is, that the distance between two spokes would be too narrow and no room would be left for the pathway (related posts 1).
In order to complete the labyrinth we proceed exactly as shown in the first post of this series (related posts 4). First the situation of the center has to be determined (fig. 2).
The center lies at the top end of the right half of the seed pattern of the main axis. This is exactly the same as in the one-arm labyrinths in the MiM-style (related posts 4). However, as here are arranged four seed patterns with two halves each on the central auxiliary circle, the center is shifted to the upper end of the eighth part at bottom right.
In fig. 3 then we draw a wall delimiting the pathway around the center along the lines of the auxiliary figure.
From there we add one wall delimiting the pathway after each other and by this complete the IV th quadrant (fig. 4).
The walls delimiting the path of the IV th quadrant envelop the center and connect the right half of the seed pattern of the main axis with the left half of the seed pattern of the 3rd side-arm.
Next, the walls delimiting the pathway of the other quadrants have to be completed. Where do we have to begin with? This is shown in figure 5.
The places where the seed patterns of two different axes connect to each other each are on the innermost, 11th circuit. These places are already well known from the 9th post of this series (related posts 3). They are highlighted with dashed lines. On these spokes lie the inner walls delimiting the pieces of the pathway that have to be connected. So first, we prolong these walls delimiting the pathway until they reach the radius that is highlighted with a dashed circle. On this auxiliary circle lie the inner walls delimiting the 11th circuit.
These are then connected with chains of lines along the spokes and rings of the auxiliary figure (fig. 6). These lines represent the outer walls delimiting the path of the 11th circuit and the inner walls delimiting the path of the 10th circuit (fig. 6).
Figures 7 to 9 show, how the other quadrants are completed sequentially
If we then remove the auxiliary figure, we can easily view the final result (fig. 10).
