For Thomas Girbl, on the one hand the discs symbolize the infinite, the self-contained and recurring, and on the other hand the gold. The symbol for that is an circle with a dot in the middle. Gold is and remains one of the most important and valuable precious metals - in many cultures it stands for the sun, the light and, because of its ability to withstand fire, also for the infinite.
