As you can see, the word "eye" (*muk) shares the same sign as the word "to see" (*kens), presumably because one sees with the eyes.Similarly, the word "mouth" (*kouʔ) shares a sign with the word "name" (*meŋ), although the relationship in this case is a bit looser.The Chinese writing system is an unique phenomenon in the modern world of alphabet scripts.Instead of a few dozen letters, it has developed thousands of complex signs or "characters" that represent morphemes and words.As you can imagine, signs having multiple meanings can lead to wrong interpretation of texts.
The first word is the original meaning of the sign, presumably because it represents the object it is supposed to represent, and the second word is represented by the sign because its pronunciation is the same or similar to the first word.
For instance, the first sign is that of a stylized elephant, and unsurprisingly its original meaning is "elephant".
However, because "image" has the same pronunciation as "elephant" (*ziaŋʔ), it is also written with the stylized elephant sign.
And at least in one instance an emblem, namely bird with a solar symbol, continues to be used as clan name in early Shang dynasty on bronze artifacts.
The prevalent thought is that at some point in time these symbols ceased to represent the objects they illustrate but instead came to represent the words of the objects.
