s003-1

 

The earliest pictograph for hand placed undue emphasis on the palm lines as basiss0032-2. Practical experience, however, put man on the right lines - the fingers : s003-3. Finally, reinforced with straight lines s003-4 the character assumed the modern forms003-5 with fingers of unequal length. For, as the proverb goes, "Of the ten fingers, some are long and some are short." s003-5 proved handy as radical for numerous characters with its variants s003-6 and s003-7.
