Venice Pier Sports Labyrinth for the Holidays

Venice Pier sports a labyrinth for the Holidays — 22 December thru 27 December.

The labyrinth is a joint effort by Andreas Hoenigschmid with his crew and the Venice Pier Project to celebrate the winter solstice, the king tides, and the Holiday Season.

Andreas has done many of the sand sculptures that Venice Update has photographed.

“The design has a yellow “flower” meditation center which had not been photographed when that pic was taken,” said Noel Johnston, Venice Pier supporter. “It also has accurate north/south directional arrows on it. I understand that it is the first time that any design has been applied to the pier and we hope to be able to do more in the future.”
