Notes

The labyrinth is expression of spatial thinking since times immemorial. It demonstrates the mankind’s eternal efforts to salvation from the evil and to reaching perfection. The Armenian Heritage Park memorial opened in Boston, Massachusetts, the USA, in 2012. The architect is Donald Telalyan. The memorial comprises an abstract sculpture and a labyrinth. The sculpture, a split dodecahedron, is dedicated to the memory of Armenian Genocide victims. It is symbolic of Armenians who were pulled apart from their country of origin. Annually, the sculpture is reconfigured as it reshapes the two halves into a new and different configuration, giving it the new spirit and idea of uniting the people scattered all over the world. At the center is a circular labyrinth, symbolizing the path of life of those Armenians who survived. Jetting on the sign of eternity a single wellspring marks labyrinth’s center, representing hope and rebirth. The Armenian Heritage Park memorial is also generally recognized by other nations living in the USA as an expression of an idea of national identity and unity.
