Square. This geometric form is solid, proper, staid, even rigid. It is the rock of ages. Its parent, the rectangle, is expansive but less harmonious.  Together or alone in linear array, they are the stepping stones of life and the bricks of structure.  The white backgrounds sharpen the edges, provide idealistic clarity, space, and peace.
