Circles and Octagons were a bit easier: Symbolic meaning of octagon and The Octagon in Leonardo’s Drawings.

Makes you wonder why these are used inside a supposedly 1913 Train Station.

The octagon is found in baptisteries as a symbol representing eternal life, likely because the number eight is symbolic of renewal. The circle is symbolic of the heavens (also eternity/infinity) and the angularity of the square is symbolic of earthly presence.

Occasionally, the

*octagon*was viewed as a symbol for infinity. It was suggested that the

*octagon*is a

*circle*attempting to become a square, and a square attempting to become a

*circle*.
