The International Symbol of Access (ISA), also known as the (International) Wheelchair Symbol, consists of a blue square overlaid in white with a stylized image of a person using a wheelchair. It is maintained as an international standard, ISO 7001, and a copyrighted image of the International Commission on Technology and Accessibility (ICTA), a committee of Rehabilitation International. It was designed by Susanne Koefoed in 1968. The design was modified by Karl Montan. Taking the original copy of the design, he added a circle to the top of the seated figure, thus giving it a head.
In modern times, ivory has become a highly charged symbol; although the material has been utilized by humans for millennia, the large-scale hunting of rare animals for their ivory has long been a prominent issue in the conservation community. Ivory has acquired many symbolic meanings over the centuries, some of which bridge the gap between ancient and modern.
