    85,000 taps – the making of the Centennial Park Labyrinth

 

 

85,000 – that’s the approximate number of times that stonemasons tapped the 1,700 pieces of individually cut and shaped stone that make up the Centennial Park Labyrinth. It’s not just a labyrinth, it’s art.

The story of the Centennial Park Labyrinth had been told on a recent radio documentary but now the story has come to the small screen, broadcast on ABC Compass. A small team from the ABC followed the creation of the Labyrinth from the outset, and you can now see the show online.

Here are a few behind the scenes images exclusively made available on the blog.
