It’s a head with a colored background. But definitely shows different perspectives!

There have been many generic avatars here over the years, like generic males and females, the first letter of the member's username, and now ones that look like a set of lungs.

I think the current trend is gender neutral images, hence the change. I thought it looked like lungs as well.

avatars are neutral; we wanted something that will make you upload your own personal avatar
