This is an experimental book to consider the meaning and the shape of the Chinese characters Kanjis. I disjointed Kanjis and extracted the smallest elements, then placed them in a common scene to link them. These continuing scenes with Kanji elements enable you to think about the origins of these characters. Kanji characters are ideograms developed from hieroglyphics; the shapes and combinations of the elements have their own meaning. By placing the elements in a suitable situation, I aimed to explain the origin of Kanji.
