The symbol looks like it's trying to be two plus signs with pointy
ends, mapped onto a sphere. But the sphere mapping isn't quite done
right. If we could fix that, I think this could be a real candidate.

There are all kinds of obvious experiments to do after that, like
perhaps adding a little shading to enhance the 3D effect, or going the
other direction, and make it more linear and drawing-like.
