    seems different, "X" and "N" are not about image. And what about
    "pyramid"? It's about shape or form. But it's a little different.

    I think you posted to the wrong group but I would propose
    "figurograph" from the Latin roots for shape and writing.
    Pictograph or ideogram are the closest existing words in meaning.
    Another example word would be "ell".
