“He drew a circle that shut me out-
Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In !"
Coincidentally the last line of the poem was inscribed on my father-in-law's stone. Mystery solved.

I was scanning some artwork from my father-in-law this past weekend (remember the mantra – digitize, digitize, digitize) and I came across some graphic designs that I recognized and one that I didn’t.
Warren Francis Clark was an Artist, an Art Professor, an Art Director, a Humanist and a Unitarian Universalist. I describe him that way because all the graphics that I scanned were his versions of religious symbols. I also tend to talk about Warren in the past tense because he has Alzheimer’s and is not the same person that I am writing about. He also can’t tell me the meaning of one of the symbols that I scanned.
Google has a feature that they released in the last year or so in their Images section. If you upload a copy of the image you have then Google will search for similar images.
Now this worked great for the symbols of Taoism and Buddhism that looked familiar but I couldn’t place the names. The last symbol is a mystery to me and Google couldn’t find anything similar.
Does anybody out in the Blogosphere recognize this graphic? I don’t even know the correct orientation.
