Today we started with a new series related to 木. Looking at 本, the new character we will learn today, it is composed with 木 and an indicator [image]. We know 木 originally means tree. with the indicator [image] drawn upon the root part of the tree, is to denote the meaning of root of a tree. and 本 is eventually extended naturally to mean root or base or origin or source as well.

Let us confirm our observation with its evolution history: (image get from http://www.vividict.com)

From its Bronze Script [image], it is quite obvious that Chinese ancestors added 3 indicators to root parts of the [image], During Seal Script (籀文[image]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shizhoupian) period, [image]was to add extra drawings of roots [image]under[image] to emphasize the meaning of root of a tree. Starting from Clerical Script[image], 本 is pretty much finalized with the same writing for the following two thousand years.

Now let us enjoy a Chinese calligraphy with 本 inside:
