Left radical is one of the many versions of the 'hand' radical. The right radical is a character found only in Chinese, composed of the radicals for 'grass/plants' (top element) and 'join together/fit' (合). It is used here phonetically to express 'build up'. Originally this character seems to have meant 'building up by hand', i.e., loading goods in a pile on a boat or vehicle. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Hands join plants together for loading.'
