do you have a visual metaphor for the canon?

I was thnking that visual props would be kind of cool to use when talking about canon construction. For example, is the canon "contained?" (glass jar, big box, something else?) Then, physical 3-d representations of what's in the canon (marbles, legos, something else?). Does a physical representation physically unsettle all of the other elements of the canon when it's added? What about when adding something breaks the wall of the container?
