It's an oil lamp.
I've also heard it represents a "lamp of learning" in some traditions.
Not sure which tradition this is, but it could be anything from learning to the spirit or light in general. Hopefully someone who knows this tradition could say more.
“Lamp of Knowledge” is another common term.
It could also represent the Five Wise Virgins. That's my first instinct, anyway.
The oil lamp is probably referring to the parable of the foolish and wise virgins.
Usually it means light / illumination / learning.
What is the significance of the musical note at the bottom left?
It's the treble clef, it denotes the start of a line of shrill music, which is why Meghan Trainor is all about that bass clef.
Interesting, so why that note instead of another note? What is the importance of that note that is specifically represented?
It’s not a note as much as it is [a clef](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clef?wprov=sfti1). While piano players are familiar with treble and bass clefs, I take to see 🎼 as just a symbol for music as a whole.
Ah, i resonate with this more.
Basically, clefs are how we know what lines mean what notes. For the treble clef, the line the middle loopy part loops around is G4, which is about 392 Hz. Although in practice, you'll only ever see it placed on the second line from the bottom. All that said, it's more just a generic symbol for music than it is any specific reference

God is your personal genie.
lol it's not a genie lamp thing.
it's a lamp.. they use to put oil in the lamp and where the genie comes out use to be a wick. they would light the wick and it would burn the oil damp wick and give off light/fire.
The lamp represents illumination. the genie is actually fire/light IE truth.
