In this world, we need to have compassion around us! A little compassion goes a long way in my opinion! So, My second Asian Button Girl Compassion 惻隱之心 is to praise this belief of mine.
This time I added my original handwritten calligraphy of Chinese Oracle Bone Script 甲骨文 – 心 (Heart) to my illustration. According to Wikipedia, Chinese Oracle Bone Script 甲骨文 is refer to ancient Chinese Characters found on oracle bones, which were animal bones or turtle shells used in divination in Bronze Age China. You can click here,and learn more about it on Wikipedia.
Anyway, I chosen heart 心 in the script to complete this illustration because it is best to describe compassion for me. I did lots of research and there were two different ways of writing 心 in the script. I then decided to go for this version after practicing writing both of them. As you can see the heart character in the script is actually resemble to the image of an actual heart. It is pretty much apply to all the old Chinese inscriptions and pictogram that I adore in early Chinese characters.
