Amazing Chinese Characters (342) Clip - 夹

 The shell bone script of character Clip is


The middle is a big man with his arms open. The two small people under armpits of the big man are holding him, which means Clip originally.

The bronze script of the character is


Similar to shell bone script.

The big seal script of the character is

Still similar to older scripts.

The clerical script of the character is


Similar to older scripts, 人 under the armpits are Person or People of clerical script.

The song typeface of the character is

The people under armpits are dots, and there is an extra horizontal line, changed away from original pictography, we still feel some clip alike. It is OK because the character means from the different clips, not just two people clip one man anymore. 

Its Pinyin is Jia2.
