Circles in the Sand
Circles in the Sand was created in 2011 by labyrinth artist Denny Dyke. In the early years it was not uncommon to see mentions of "crop circles" or "alien art" after his work was found on the sand. His first intention was to create labyrinths so that everyone could enjoy a walk on the sand.
