Concept NASA art for a proposed manned Mars shot, landing, and return. (But why are they pixel-y gif's instead of jpeg's? It's not 1994 and we're not using Mosaic, guys. Hm. Maybe this art is really old? All of the page links are dead.)

meaning: wife

先妻 == sensai == former wife, late wife
一夜妻 == ichiyazuma == temporary consort, prostitute (literally, 'one night wife', heh)

Bottom radical is 'woman' (女), top radical is derived from a pictograph of a hand holding a broom, presumably indicating domestic work. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Wife holds broom in hand.'
