According to mkweb.co.uk

Willen Maze is a turf maze based on an enlarged version of the Saffron Walden Rosicrucian Maze and designed by landscape architect Neil Higson. At its centre is an oak tree and in each of the four lobes – at the cardinal points of the compass – is a bronze face designed by the sculptor Tim Minett. The four bronze faces represent the four main races of mankind and are inspired by the faces on teh artist’s bollards in the Shopping Centre. The maze unifies them in peace and places them in the context of dominant nature, symbolised by the oak tree.

The Sufi Basis of The Taming of The Shrew

Most Baconians are familiar with the symbolism of Shake-speare as Pallas Athena the Spear Shaker, but the name has another, more concealed meaning. In Syria, where the cult originated, Kidhr is equated with St. George (who is the patron saint of England).

According to Idries Shah, The Order of The Garter in England (whose patron saint is St. George) derived from the Sufi Khidr Order. Sufis have sometimes rendered Shakespeare in perfectly correct and acceptable Persian as Sheikh-Peer, “The Ancient Sage.” William Shakespeare, and Miguel Cervantes, both of whom Bacon utilized as his masks, are recorded as dying on the birthday of St. George. In the Anatomy of Melancholy, when referring to “that omniscious, only wise fraternity of the Rosie Cross” Bacon names their head as “Elias Artifex, their Theophrastian master” and then describes him as “the renewer of all arts and sciences, reformer of the world, and now living.” Since, the Great Instauration, (the renewal of all arts and sciences), was Bacon’s work, the implication is that Bacon himself was head of the Rosicrucian Fraternity, and that Bacon was Elias who was Kidhr, The Green One, the supernatural figure who is the hidden guide, and patron of the Sufi Orders.

Rosicrucian manifestos

by 5ocietyx

Between 1607 and 1616, two anonymous manifestos were published, first in Germany and later throughout Europe.[2] These were Fama Fraternitatis RC  (The Fame of the Brotherhood of RC) and Confessio Fraternitatis (The Confession of the Brotherhood of RC). The influence of these documents, presenting a “most laudable Order” of mystic-philosopher-doctors and promoting a “Universal Reformation of Mankind”, gave rise to an enthusiasm called by its historian Dame Frances Yates the “Rosicrucian Enlightenment”.[3]
