母 | mǔ

In Mandarin Chinese, (Pinyin: 🔊) means “mother”, or, when applied to an animal, “female”.

This character has evolved from a pictogram of a woman with rather exaggerated breasts with nipples. The historical forms of show a standing or kneeling female figure. In the modern form, the woman’s chest is rectangular and rotated 90° so the whole affair now looks more like a chest of drawers.
