水 | shuǐ

In Mandarin Chinese, (Pinyin: shuǐ 🔊) means “water”.

Water is one of the five elements of traditional Chinese philosophy. Historical forms of this character, similar to those of (chuān) “river, brook, flow”, look like drawings of a steady stream, but I prefer to think of as depicting a splash or a waterfall.
