|Left radical was originally a pictograph of shackles, and the right radical a pictograph of a kneeling person with outstretched hands. This character originally meant 'to shackle a prisoner'. (As I've mentioned before, ancient China must have been a fell and scary place, given the actions they needed specific characters for.) From this evolved the character's current meanings. Henshall suggests taking the left radical as 'happiness' (幸), the left radical as 'round' (丸), and as a mnemonic: 'Happiness rounded off by taking a prisoner.'|
