CHALLENGE: Pi Day

According to the crazy American date system, Pi Day is this week. And it's a big one this year (3/14/15).

So, this week, create an image that depicts three regular-sized objects and a much smaller one (or a small portion of one of the big objects). For example three whole pies and a slice of pie.

The small object should be a small fraction of the other objects; roughly 1/7th the size is ideal (ie. the '.1415' of pi), but a little bit bigger or smaller is fine too.

You must use the colour: #314159.

Bonus imaginary points for submitting your entry at exactly 9:26:53am on March 14th.

Canvas Size - Max 141 x 141.
Colours - Max 31.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

Something a bit esoteric maybe. A lot of 3.141592 hidden in there. Still a WIP.

Intriguing, but I don't really understand what is going on :P
I can see that the yellow dots follow a pattern of 3, 1, 4, but I don't see the logic behind everything else.

Overlapping is fine.

@sgtcrispy, I have to admit, I'm a little confused as to how that actually fits the challenge.

Also, if it wasn't clear, living creatures are fine too.

Since the hex is in base 16, the pi colors would be 3243F6 and not the #314159

@keeling00 I would not be able to figure out how to convert it into base 16. My head would explode. That color, 3243F6, I don't really like it as much as 314159. I'm sure you would be able to use it just as easily.

Well, the rules say to use 314159, so that's what I'm doing. Still pretty cool.

EDIT: Wait. How did you even get that hex code? I put in 314159 into this calculator and i got 2CB2F. Whatever.

The green blocks would be the target for the challenge. hence the little ones near the center.
Unless thats a little too on the nose (or something) for the rules.

For the other pi stuff look at the spacing and number of pixels.
That's all very "my own weird logic"
Not too worried about it, just something I whipped up uber quick.

I'm not sure about this. It's certainly not finished. I want to ask you guys what you think it looks like. I want to make what the things are very readable. For sure, I think it looks a lot better when it's 200%.

EDIT: To clarify, I want people to know what the icons are right when they look at them. If they don't recognize what they are, I'll have to do some work.

The challenge's text says: " image that depicts three regular-sized object", but the first entry is about orcs (imaginary creatures, but still not objects). Can we draw for example people, or just objects? This isn't clear now.

(And if our society objectize beautiful women, then can we draw beautiful women?  ) (Hm, maybe I will do this, I just realized that this isn't a bad idea et all - if we are allowed to do this.)

Why orcs cannot be 'objects'?

Sorry, I forgot the miniature games.

(And no offense, I like your pic, I just want to work strictly as the rules says, and I've seen challenge entries accepted wich weren't really by the rules - in my opinion. I just wanted to know what's up. Anyway, thanks for the answer.)

The point is not that this miniature. The 'object' can be alive or not, isn't it? I mean philosophically. Or in English it should not be alive? No offense, just asking.

English is not my native language, so I can only say, that in my language an object in something that's not living (and I could also say size requirements). Even a dead body (human or animal) can't be an object (exept some parts, like a skull, or horn).

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury; may I submit evidence to support Sjhwi1a's claims?
Orcs are objects.. at least they are the objects of my desire in this exhibit:

Well, I can't find the 3.14 objects. I like how the gun is shaped like π, though.
