c001-1

 

The evolutionary struggle of this character sees man fighting a losing battle. Earliest forms show the mouth filled with teeth :  c001-2 and later only front teeth :  c001-3. The regular form :  c001-4 has the teeth sharpened and capped by the phonetic :  c001-5 . The simplified version :   c001-6 drastically reduces the remaining teeth to one. But, with all that loss, man can still console himself that many a true word is spoken through false teeth.
