Riverwalk, downtown Naperville, Illinois. Material is compressed concrete ‘pavers’. They can be dyed almost any color and are cut to tight tolerances. Note detail below. Installation includes a small amphitheater and is part of an extensive River park system. This is a replica of the Chartres Labyrinth.

Notice how the two colors of stone have been precisely cut and fit to continue the look of a 'whole' stone.

The eye and body naturally flow with the path into the labrys(turns). The craftsman carefully cut and fit each stone. The whole project took three months. He also tumbled each stone to achieve the aged look with rounded edges.

This was the first Chartres labyrinth made by stone artist Marty Kermeen.
