Cryptomaze 003 “Wopdom”

Solve the maze to find the cryptogram word.  There is also a encrypted message in the left over letters.  Use the key A=S to help decode them both.

Once you solve this cryptomaze you will have found one path that cuts through some of the letters in the maze. That’s all well and fine, but you’re still going to have to solve for the motto “______ and _____ are the ______ on the ______ of ______.” Good luck, and have fun!

Here is the story of the title of the artwork.  One day, while visiting friends in a nearby rural county, one of them, I’ll call her Jen, asked me to look at a stone with an engraving on it.  The stone, small enough to fit in your hand, was a gift of great portent and emotion for it was received in the spirit of love and affection, from her partner “Sue”.  I looked at the proffered object and read the following word “Wopdom”.  “Wopdom?” I said, “why, that’s not a word.”  “Exactly so!” said Jen, “I read the same thing when I got it!” and smiling, and she turned over the stone so I could see what the word was.  Well, if I told you the word, I’d give away the cryptomaze.  You’ll just have to solve it to see!
