Avatar - first appeared in 1784 from a Sanskrit word, avatarana, which means descent, usually in the form of a deity to the earth, as in "descended from". As in "ava", which means "down", and "tarati" which means "crosses over".
Loosely then, for example, "Moon Grower" is an avatar, as is the photo, although more strictly it is the wording that is really more connected to the person, and the photo more connected to a butterfly.

No worries Pamg, and I had always understood the avatar was the image.
