Man in the Maze

Man in the Maze

A symbol belonging to the Native Americans found both in Basketry and in Hopi Indian silver work. The symbol shows a maze, with the figure of a man either about to leave or enter it. The symbol represents the choices and decisions that a person has to make during the journey of their life. The centre of the maze is dark, this shows the unknown world and the mysteries of initiation and the other area is light, the unknown world, and familiar things.
