From my project 'Kanji PictoCards' in which I create visuals that match the shape and meaning of Japanese kanji characters.
I love visual mnemonics. I've written books on learning Japanese kanji with the help of illustrations that match the shape of kanji and convey their meaning. This is my favorite of the 1500 visuals I've created so far. The original images that this kanji is based on comes from a pictograph of a hand holding a stick. It represents the authority, discipline, and punishment of fathers. I like my visual way better. Here is kanji mnemonic number 189 of 1945.
