I am curious about the symbols surrounding the sacrament image above.
I believe the square (4) and the circle (1), which are among the most archetypal shapes/numbers, are found in the sacramental emblems. The square is the visual form of the number 4 and has reference to the body, flesh, the earth, and also in this context, the Son.
The cup and the liquid inside reference the circle, the visual form of the number 1. This number is associated with the Spirit, blood, heaven, and in this context, the Father. When you overlap 4 and 1 you get the squared circle motif which can be expressed in a number of ways.
The number four and one make five which is a number associated with life, regeneration, and grace among others. I created the graphic as part of a thought experiment on these ideas. For more info about symbols and their potential meanings I created another site, http://www.ldssymbols.com
