Fresh from the Naxiology desk, comes the latest "interesting similarities between the Chinese and Dongba scripts" post.
Time for another ideogrammic compound - this time its meat + fire. Which, in Chinese, gives us 炙 zhi, and in Dongba we get bʏ˧ (Dongba on the left!).
Here we can again see the slightly more explicit, less stylised "pictographic" Dongba character, but the elements in the Chinese character are easily identifiable too.
The Dongba character is a little more complex, but (I think) easier to remember - and you can almost smell that meat!
