Ariadne’s Thread

Ariadne's Thread

 

Because she loved Theseus so much, she helped him escape the Minotaur’s maze with a very magical string woven, not of red fleece as the legend says, but of gold and iridescent fibers to help light the way. Charms, beads and totems are woven into the thread, which is knotted at intervals, to create an aura of protection about Theseus.
