Art & Wall Decor by Annemarie Rawlinson seen at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Torrance - Labyrinth

Labyrinth

Labyrinths are intricate paths that lead to one central point. They are found in many cultures and are usually linked to spiritual practices. Today labyrinths are often used as metaphorical tools to help reestablish a sense of peace and well-being.

Located between Harbor-UCLA’s main building and the Parlow Library, “Labyrinth" (2003) by artist Annemarie Rawlinson is a floor mural based on the design of Cretan and Hopi labyrinths. It is intended for patients and visitors to the hospital to walk on and use to assist in meditation. It is painted a bright shade of purple with diferent religious symbols in the center. Three benches nearby were also painted by the artist for patients and visitors to use.
