The (dot) circle in Christianity is - among others - the symbol of infinity, of perfection and, therefore, of God - God is described as a circle of which the circumference is nowhere and the centre is everywhere - the egg, which is round everywhere in cross section, while its whole is seen as oval, holds within it the “vesica piscis” - it also served as a way to repel evil and bring luck.
