If design and graphics are “visual languages”, chinese also. Here you are an example:

Forest + Flame = Fire
But, with a little of imagination, you can see it yourselves:

This character is mu (wood) means tree and, its shape could have a remembrance to one of them.

This is lin (forest), and it’s just to “mus” together. Logical.

Huo means flame, and looks like one (OK, you need some perspective)

And if we add a flame to the forest we got… Fen, which means “burn” or “fire”.
