Why to use the Graphics command?
You can achieve what you want with simple graphics programming.
Before presenting the code, I will break it in its steps so that
you understand the procedure.
To this end Copy/Paste the following in a notebook (as a whole cell)
and execute the commands.
Print["here is your circle"]
g = ParametricPlot[{Cos[y], Sin[y]}, {
y, 0, 2*Pi}, Axes -> False, PlotStyle -> Thickness[0.01],
AspectRatio ->
1];
Print["look at the InputForm of g"]
Print["InputForm\[Implies] " InputForm[g]]
Print["the circle is constructed by connecting\nwith
Line the following points"]
Cases[g, {(x_)?NumberQ, (y_)?NumberQ}, Infinity]
Print["wrap the list of points to Polygon"]
Polygon@%%
Print["the resulting shape"]
Show[Graphics[%%], AspectRatio -> 1]
Note we have full access in this way.
Indeed see the output of the complete code, below:
Block[{$DisplayFunction = Identity}, g = ParametricPlot[{Cos[y],
Sin[y]}, {y, 0, 2*Pi}, Axes -> False,
PlotStyle -> Thickness[0.02]]];
Show[{g, g /. Line[x_] :> {GrayLevel[0.7], Polygon[x]}}, AspectRatio -
> 1];
