The North Wind And The Sun

I have always been a tad obsessed with weathers and elements. As a child my favourite Aesop Fable was The North Wind And The Sun. The moral teaches about the superiority of persuasion over force. The eventual winner was the sun, hence why the wind aspect is inside the circle. 

To portray the story, I used wind fronts from weather maps combined with spiritual symbols for The Sun.

Pythagoras (Circle)

Although Euclid wasn't the first to propose many geometrical elements, he did first show them in propositions that were comprehensive and logical. This is the circular version of Pythagoras' theorem, and is relative to Euclidean geometry.

Yin And Yang

I usually find this a passé symbol but actually reading into it makes it far more likeable. In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang, describes how apparently opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, and male and female) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality of yin and yang. 

This duality lies at the origins of many branches of classical Chinese science and philosophy.
