Through Mazes to Mathematics

The Jericho maze from a Sefer Haftorot

Maze from a 15th Century Yemenite Haftorot. The seven concentric walls symbolize the seven walls of Jericho. The words of Psalm 104, vv. 1-18, 20, 21 wind along the path. In the center is written``Jericho'' and ``The image of the wall of Jericho. The reader is as if walking.'' (Thanks to Prof. Robert Goldberger for the translation.)
