b005-1

 

This character originated from the butcher's practice of dividing ( b005-2 ) an ox (b005-3 ) into two halves, in all its length, before cutting up, b005-3 was modified to b005-4 to facilitate exact division. Hence : b005-5 , meaning " half ". Even though it is easy to split one ox into two halves, the saying proves true : " you cannot get two skins from one ox. "
