Bring the whole family to experience a gigantic, whimsical labyrinth for three weeks at Damrosch Park. Daedalum is formed out of 19 egg-shaped domes, twisting and turning into the tunnels of a maze. Passing through the maze, the visitor discovers two original features—an incredibly intricate rainbow-colored tree and a cavernous dome. Translucent elements throughout the maze produce vistas and hues of considerable variety and subtlety, creating mysterious sight-lines and viewpoints, unqiue to the vistor's perspective. The 600-piece pattern of the main dome ceiling was loosely inspired by Rome’s Pantheon with its radiant oculus mimicking the sun and the Gustave Doré drawing of angels circling heavenward in Dante’s paradise.
