Pictograms and Interpreting Symbolic Meanings

Using ideograms or pictograms is a great way of interpreting symbolic meanings.

A pictogram is a simple picture that represents a physical object. Similarly, an ideogram is an image that represents a concept or idea. Because pictures convey far more depth than just words on a piece of paper, we can get deeper meaning by recording our symbolic phenomenon with simple pictures.

Our ancient ancestors knew this. Consider Egyptian hieroglyphs. Or cave drawings. There’s a reason pictograms pre-date the written word.
