A graven image clearly means to make something to represent God in order to worship that image instead of God.
This insults God because it says that we as puny little beings can somehow quantify the boundless and almighty Yahweh.
The fish symbol how ever is not a graven image as it does not seek to represent the likeness of God.
The symbol was used to denote a group of Christ's followers at a time when meeting to worship the risen King of Kings could get you tossed into the lion's den.
No one I have ever heard of bows down to the fish symbol and worships that symbol as if it were God, if for no other reason than that particular fish denotes a human group, and therefore wholly unworthy of worship.
Let's not get bogged down in legalism. Christ assures us that he who is ashamed of Him, so shall Christ be ashamed of him before the Father.
So I say tack on those fish, the new world apostasy is upon us and soon enough my brothers we will have our turn in the lion's den.
