Labyrinths appear most often in conjunction with spirals, and they are commonly found etched in the entrances and chambers of the ancient Neolithic tombs. On the surface, a labyrinth may resemble a maze, but in fact they are quite different. A labyrinth is continuous and always ends where it begins. While a maze has many turns and blind alleys, a labyrinth traces a single path. Labyrinths are associated with rebirth and the afterlife.
