The Man in the Maze
The figure above is known as the "Man in the maze," an emblem of the Tohono
Nation of Southern Arizona (formerly known as the Papago Indians). The
design is;" A man exiting a labyrinth
". Labyrinths are common motifs in ancient
(Native American rock art), and often resemble those found in
ancient Greece and other parts of the world.
This symbol is said to;" Represent a person's journey through life
". Although the design appears to be a maze, it is actually a unicursal
figure ( Labyrinth
) with many twists and turns; these are said to represent
choices made in life. The center is dark, as the journey is one from darkness to light.

growth that can guide them through the maze. At each turn, there is an opportunity to understand and appreciate the cycle of life, and to gain
strength to move toward their goals. If the path is traveled in harmony and with a balance with nature, the legend says that dreams and ambitions will
be found at the center of the maze, where E-e-thoi (Sun God) waits. He then passes them on to the next world.
There is no one meaning to the Man in the Maze.
