An ambigram is a word, art form or other symbolic representation, whose elements retain meaning when viewed or interpreted from a different direction, perspective, or orientation.
The meaning of the ambigram may either change, or remain the same, when viewed or interpreted from different perspectives. [Wikipedia]
 
An anagram is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once; for example orchestra can be rearranged into carthorse. Someone who creates anagrams may be called an "anagrammatist".[1] The original word or phrase is known as thesubject of the anagram. [Wikipedia]
