Graphic symbols and elements we see in famous logos today are a result of numerous techniques studied in the last couple of centuries. Considering the evolution of our society and its demands the old Instagram logo, introduced in 2010, might just not cut it today. The original Apple logo with its realistic style drawing looks way too complicated and forgettable for us, while the old Starbucks logo shows some indecency in it. We, as a society, are more used to simplistic style these days. Also, since we've gotten better at understanding symbols, famous logos changed taking in mind our demands.

So Canon started out as Kwanon, Guan Yin, what Westerners call the Buddhist goddess of mercy. Only Guan Yin is asexual, and not a god.
