A Glyph, is a Symbol with an archaic nuance, and at this point I want to open a parenthesis, there is not a direct relation between a Sign, Signal or a Logo with a Symbol, which differentiates one from others, is that the Symbol contains all the primordial value attributable to hundreds of years of history and evolution, so its power is that it is something that is rooted in the Collective Unconscious.
