Amazing Chinese Characters (32) Pick - 采

The Shell Bone script of character Pick is


a hand picking up fruits on a tree. The top is character - claw or hand,the bottom is character - fruit.  It is an ideogram character from a combination of two pictography characters.

The bronze script of the character is

The top is hand, the bottom is Wood (Post 10). The fruit is eliminated to simplify the character, or ancient Chinese may want to show the result of picking up: the fruit is disappeared.

Big seal script of the character is
Similar to bronze script.

Its Small Seal script is


very similar to the big seal script, the lines are more smooth.

Its clerical script is


beautiful but less pictography, the claw has seperated three dots,  and three fruits on the top of the tree disappeared.
