Kanji of the Week

Pictures turned into kanji. Diagonal lines are used to draw pictures as well as vertical and horizontal lines. Most kanji are made with vertical and horizontal strokes. Let's fit the pictures into a square grid to make kanji.
The top left part expresses the head and neck of a horse. The right side is the mane. The four dots on the bottom are the four legs. In kanji the whole shape is drawn with vertical lines.
