Appropriated from ancient sign-systems using a dot and a circle in conjunction the symbol or visual tag I use (e.g. as a watermark for photos) is the astronomical and astrological symbol for the sun. Conceptually close is the “Bindu” in Hinduist tradition (the point of creation) and the Egyptian sign for “sun” or “Ra” in the hieroglyphic writing system. The character for “sun” or “day” in early Chinese script was similar, but it has become square in modern script.
