Shapes are normally described by their boundaries. Here we shift the description to the interior by using as primitive, a growth or a disc (growth of a point). Two-dimensional, filled-in shapes are then described using the discs which just fit inside. The description consists of two parts: the symmetric axis or locus of centers of these discs and the radii of these discs along the symmetric axis
