Amazing Chinese Characters (515) Fertile - 沃

 The big seal script of character Fertile is

The left is character Water, the right top is Grass Head Radical, which means grass, or plant like trees. The bottom is character Dancing (Post 424), here the meaning is lush, A land with plenty of water and lush vegetation is fertile.

The small seal script of the character is

Similar to big seal script.

The clerical script of the character is
The left is Three Water Drops Radical, a simplified Water, the right one is character Dancing. The character is lack of grass, the Grass head is disappeared, A land with plenty of water but no vegetation? It is very odd to cut off the grass head, the meaning is not same as the older characters. I guess that it is a mistake to drop off the grass head.

The pinyin of the character is Wo4.
