Footage of the Hampton Court Palace maze, established in 1689 and perhaps the most famous existing maze in the world, is contrasted with Anishinabe petroforms found in Manitoba’s Whiteshell area. The English, mannered, controlled hedges are designed to limit sight; the rocks of the Canadian Shield, arranged in patterns of turtles, snakes and humans, were created to inspire teaching and healing. Finnigan interrogates the wisdom of the colonizing versus the colonized culture.
