The shell bone script of character Take is
is character Ear (Post 42).
The right is a hand.
There are many explanations for the script, the major three are
1, Cut enemy's ears to show how many one killed.
2, Cut wild animal's ears to show many one killed
3, Cut wild animal's ear to reward the hunter (the rest is shared with whole tribe)
I prefer to number 3, which has the meaning of "Take".
The bronze script of the character is
The ear on the left, and hand on the right, even though they are not like the ear or the hand as much as the shell bone script.
The big seal script of the character is
The small seal script of the character is
The left is ear, and the right is hand.
The clerical script is
The left is character 耳 - ear, the right is character 又 - Again (Post 102), which means Hand originally and here.
The song typeface of the character is
Same as the clerical script.
The Pinyin of 取 is Qu3.
