Another way to look at is this (courtesy of Erik BЕgfors on the linux-lvm mailing list):

    hda1   hdc1      (PV:s on partitions or whole disks)                        
       \   /                                                                    
        \ /                                                                     
       diskvg        (VG)                                                       
       /  |  \                                                                  
      /   |   \                                                                 
  usrlv rootlv varlv (LV:s)
    |      |     |
