d003-1

Sea-birds often nest on mountainous rocks that emerge from the sea. Hence a bird ( d003-2 ) over a mountain ( d003-3 ) gave the concept for island : d003-4. The ancient form shows a bird hovering over a mountain, with feet visible : d003-5 The modern version has the bird settling on it, with feet hidden d003-4, probably hatching the simplified character : d003-4
