Amazing Chinese Characters (356) Bag - 包

 The big seal script of character Bag is

The inside is a baby (see Post 335), the outside is belly. A baby is in mother's belly. The belly is the bag to wrap the baby. So original character is a verb. 

The small seal script of the character is

Similar to the big script.

The clerical script of the character is

The song typeface of the character is
