The maze on the Capana Cassone

In this image, a detail of an early 16th century florentine painting (now in the museum in Avignon) by the Master of the Capana Cassone, the Chartres plan is rendered in three-dimensional perspective, and surrounded by various episodes from the Theseus legend. The hero himself appears in the center as he vanquishes the Minotaur, here rendered as a Centaur. This image is a copy of the dust-jacket of Kern's invaluable and encyclopedic work on mazes.
