Why is the Generator Point G for secp256k1 curve typically indicated in (y,-x) quadrant?

Generator Point G for the secp256k1 curve is typically indicated below where the curve intersects the y-axis. At x=0, y=sqrt(7) and -sqrt(7), which are both small numbers less than 3, but G is an extremely large integer. If it falls on the curve below the y-axis crossing it would have to have an x-coord of::Listen

Generator Point G for the secp256k1 curve is typically indicated below where the curve intersects the y-axis. At x=0, y=sqrt(7) and -sqrt(7), which are both small numbers less than 3, but G is an extremely large integer.

If it falls on the curve below the y-axis crossing it would have to have an x-coord of < 2 and y-coord of < 3 (or less than [2,3] above the %P). Is this the case or have I got something fundamentally wrong?
