ATCs: Symbols

"Google it!" by Sharon Griffith
Along with her ATCs [Artist Trading Cards], one of the FiberAntics ATC traders included a note this month saying, "I loved the possibilities with this month's theme." Another said, "… I sat down at my computer and thought… I will Google it..." and before the results loaded into the browser window, the Search engine became the response to the October ATC theme, Symbols.

Indeed, the possibilities for symbols are wide and varied. From everyday signage to emblems with historical, sacred or cultural meanings, we are surrounded by symbols that reflect the past, present and future. Perhaps you recognize some of these.
