//Setup a draw object with some drawing in it.
$draw = new \ImagickDraw();
$draw->circle(20, 20, 50, 50);
$draw->circle(50, 70, 50, 50);
$draw->rectangle(50, 120, 80, 150);

//Get the drawing as a string
$SVG = $draw->getVectorGraphics();

//$svg is a string, and could be saved anywhere a string can be saved

//Use the saved drawing to generate a new draw object
$draw2 = new \ImagickDraw();
//Apparently the SVG text is missing the root element.

$imagick = new \Imagick();
$imagick->newImage(200, 200, 'white');
