# PlotMarkers doesn't inherit PlotStyle when Graphics[a] isn't a List[]

Could somebody explain, why Circle does not inherit the PlotStyle of the plot when used as PlotMarkers? Here is an example:

l1 = RandomInteger[100, {20, 2}]
cross = Graphics[{Line[{{-1, 1}, {1, -1}}], Line[{{1, 1}, {-1, -1}}]}];
circle = Graphics[Circle[{0, 0}, 1]];
ListPlot[l1, PlotStyle -> Thick, PlotMarkers -> {cross, .03}]
ListPlot[l1, PlotStyle -> Thick, PlotMarkers -> {circle, .03}]


This seem to work as expected, but the only difference is that Graphics is given a list of primitives:

circle1 = Graphics[{Circle[{0, 0}, 1]}];
ListPlot[l1, PlotStyle -> Thick, PlotMarkers -> {circle1, .03}]

 Just look at the FullForm[] for both ... – belisarius Feb 4 at 12:42 @belisarius Sorry, still not getting it... – Ajasja Feb 4 at 12:47 I'm editing the title because Graphics[Line[{{-1, 1}, {1, -1}}]] shows the same behavior when used as plotmarker – belisarius Feb 4 at 12:48 @belisarius thanks, much better. – Ajasja Feb 4 at 12:50 @Ajasja Note that cross = Graphics[Line[{{{-1, 1}, {1, -1}}, {{1, 1}, {-1, -1}}}]]; ListPlot[l1, PlotStyle -> Thick, PlotMarkers -> {cross, .03}] also ignores the PlotStyle. So the problem is in curly brackets, try cross = Graphics[{Line[{{{-1, 1}, {1, -1}}, {{1, 1}, {-1, -1}}}]}]; ListPlot[l1, PlotStyle -> Thick, PlotMarkers -> {cross, .03}]. – Alexey Popkov Feb 4 at 14:01
