Chinese character 火 is actually still a vivid graphical depiction of the object it denotes. Anyway let us examine its evolution history first as usual: ( image get from http://www.vividict.com/ )

Oracle Script of 火 -[image] looks quite similar as that of mountain (山 - [image]) , Chinese ancestor changed it along the time to become [image]at Bronze Script period to differentiate it from 山.

[image] was actually drawing of fire flames, and when it evolved to [image], Chinese ancestors used [image]to denote heap of firewood, with [image]to denote flames. Please note that[image]of [image]is not really a drawing of human (人), unless Chinese ancestors were all supermen who could spurt fire.

With below image of a campfire, it is quite clear that 火 means fire, flame, or something fierce like burning firewood.

Now we can continue to enjoy a Chinese calligraphy with 火 inside:

薪火相传
