What are the shapes of pi and sigma bonds?

Sigma bonds overlap and can rotate while pi bonds are directly next to each other and are not able to rotate.

Sigma bonds overlap end to end while pi bonds overlap side by side, with one nodal plane containing the internuclear axis.

Sigma bonds overlap horizontally while pi bonds overlap vertically.

Sigma bonds overlap end to end while pi bonds overlap side to side, and sigma bonds are able to rotate do to the way they overlap generally.
