Glyph originEdit

Historical forms of the character
Oracle bone script Bronze inscriptions Small seal script
     

Ideogrammic compound (會意).

The earliest oracle bone inscriptions show (“tree”) with dots around it representing flames – sacrifice with firewood. In some oracle bone inscriptions, (“fire”) was added to emphasize the fire used in the sacrifice.

In the bronze inscriptions, (OC *ɡ·raʔ) was often added as a phonetic component, as seen in (OC *reːw) and (OC *reːwʔ, *reːws). This component may have been the basis of the component found in late bronze inscriptions and in the seal script.

Shuowen interprets the character as (serious) +  (fire).
