x009-1

This character combines two types of flesh : fish ( x009-2 ) and sheep ( x009-3 ). Although meat was usually preserved by salting, drying or smoking, ancient man preferred to eat the flesh of fish and sheep fresh. Hence, fish ( x009-2 ) and sheep ( x009-3 ) put together means "fresh" : x009-4. In other words, "flesh" becomes "fresh".
