Yin Yang Challenge

YouTube has a nice tutorial that shows how to make a yin yang symbol using only ten nodes:


The result, shown in the attached screenshot, is a great way for beginners to get a feel for NodeBox. Now here is a challenge for more advanced users:

Can you find a way to create the exact same symbol from scratch (no fonts or SVGs) using only SEVEN nodes?

Give it a try! The first one to post an answer will have the admiration of the entire NodeBox community.

Give up? I have attached one solution as a zip file.

I think these "minimum node" puzzles make nice brain teasers. If anyone out there can come up with another one, please post it here!
