    ellipse

    The ellipse element is an SVG basic shape, used to create ellipses based on a center coordinate, and both their x and y radius.

    Ellipses are unable to specify the exact orientation of the ellipse (if, for example, you wanted to draw an ellipse tilted at a 45 degree angle), but can be rotated by using the transform attribute.
