Year of the Rooster
This is my interpretation of the origin of the Chinese word for Chicken 雞. From the pictorial seal script, I turned it back into a design of a chicken. Chinese writing dates back to over 5000 years ago. Chinese characters evolved from pictographs to more abstract ideograms to the modern-day character, which bears a slight resemblance to its pictographic origins. The characters are divided into 3 main categories : pictographs , ideograms , phonograms. You can see the progression of the Chinese word 雞 for chicken with my other piece of art: http://www.imagekind.com/Chinese-Calligraphy-for-Year-of-the-Rooster_art?imid=76a1dca1-8885-4f46-a60b-f4136e9174bb "Chicken/rooster" is a pictograph. It has evolved from the pictorial oracle bone script, to the pictorial seal script, to the modern day character. http://www.oystudio.com/evolutionwebsmall.jpg This is my interpretation of the origin of the Chinese word for Chicken.
