Amazing Chinese Characters (124) High - 高

The shell bone script for character High is

like a watchtower. In ancient time, watchtower was higher than most houses.

The small seal script for High is

similar, but the floors are now disconnected, not a real house any more.

The clerical script is

similar as small seal script.

The current standard printing script is

same as the clerical script.

The pinyin of the character is "Gao1".
