Some forms of mazes and labyrinths

1.
- part of or entire garden (often of a castle or stately home or similarly
representative building), like this one:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maze#mediaviewer/File:Longleat_maze.jpg
or this one:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maze#mediaviewer/File:Hedge_Maze,_St_Louis_Botanical_Gardens_%28St_Louis,_Missouri_-_June_2003%29.jpg

These are typically "permanent" and do last more than a few weeks

IMHO could be a garden:style

Not sure if this should comprise stone mazes when put in similar context,
e.g. Donnafugata Castle:

or in this Chinese garden:

2.  seasonal stand alone labyrinths, often made of corn, typical in
southern Germany but also elsewhere, e.g.
http://www.maislabyrinth-eutingen.de/bilder?page=2

one suggestion could be
amenity=maze as these are dedicated mazes.



3. Finger labyrinth, engraved mazes

maybe tourism=artwork and subtype(s)?



4. Labyrinth mosaics and floor pavings
E.g. in portugal, Conimbriga

Or in France, Chartre
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labyrinth#mediaviewer/File:Labyrinth_at_Chartres_Cathedral.JPG

FWIW, I have assumed in my contributions that "maze" and "labyrinth" would
be exchangeable (indeed in German they are), but the English wikipedia
suggests they are not (they claim: maze=several ways through, labyrinth:
just one way).
