Cryptomaze “Choose”

Cryptomaze "Choose"

Cryptomaze “Choose”

In life there are ups and downs.  Things we don’t like, and things that we do.  How we react to the external world has a profound effect on our inner life; our equilibrium.  With these thoughts in mind, I developed the word and message for this cryptomaze.

To solve this cryptomaze, first solve the maze.  Then use the key A=M to decode the letters the path went through.  Then use the same key to decode all of the letters in the diagram.  You can solve the cryptogram in the diagram first if you want to, it may make it easier.

Cryptomaze “Shalom”

Health is the greatest wealth!

Cryptomaze “Shalom”

Shalom is a Hebrew word of greeting, meaning peace and prosperity.  It can be used as both a greeting and a way of saying goodbye.  It contains the seed syllable “Ah” – which is for creation; and the seed syllable “Om” which is for gratitude.  Reflect for a moment, if you will, where you experience gratitude in your life, and where you experience creation.  Perhaps they are one in the same.

With this week’s cryptomaze we return to the original instructions.  First solve the maze to find the encrypted word.  Then look at the left over letters to find the encrypted phrase.  In this puzzle the code is O=H.

Old School Cryptomaze!

Old School Cryptomaze

Old School Cryptomaze

As usual the title of the cryptomaze relates to the content of the cryptomaze. It is very tenuous in this case, as the phrase “Old School” is applied to various aspects of popular culture, and the content of the cryptomaze is not directly related to any particular aspect of popular culture. That said, the passage of time, which is in fact the reason for the phrase, is at the heart of the message of this cryptomaze.

Like last week’s cryptomaze, this week has a spin on the original concept.  When solving the cryptomaze, you will end up using all the letters to find the encoded message – including the ones that you already used to find the encrypted word.

Pangolin Maze

Pangolin Maze

Pangolin Maze

The pangolin is a very unusual mammal.  Covered with scales, it burrows through the earth looking for ants and termites.  Can you solve the pangolin maze?

A pangolin’s scales are made of keratin, the same protein that makes up hair and fingernails in people.  A pangolin may have as many as 1000 scales all over its body, except on parts of its face, and its belly.  Their are 8 species of pangolin; they are all considered endangered by the Zoological Society of London.  The largest of these species is the Giant Pangolin.  It can grow about as big as a medium sized dog, and weigh up to 75 pounds.

Pangolins are tropical and sub-tropical animals that live in Africa and Asia.  They are hunted for their scales, which may have some medicinal effect; and for food.  Human farming and other activity is also driving their numbers down as their habitat is destroyed.  Once a year, on the third Sunday in February, it is World Pangolin Day.

This original artwork is copyright 2014 by Rob Hughes.  Drawn with india ink on 9″ x 12″ Bristol white vellum surface paper.  Built to last, and made in Michigan.
