Because Graphics is the image and Circle is one of many primitives that can be part of the image. If Circle itself produced an image, how could you combine it with other Circles or primitives in one image? The Presentations package also allows the primitives produced by all the plot types to be treated directly as graphics primitives and combined directly with other graphics directives and primitives. David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: dsmithy [mailto:dsmithy at live.ca] Why do you have to place graphics primitives in the Graphics[ ] expression in order for them to be displayed graphically? Why doesn't, for example, Circle[ ] display as a graphic in StandardForm? Why must it be Graphics[Circle[ ]]? Thank you.
