Section List: The Sky

In this section, the little roof shape that you can see on the left is used to represent the sky. This ideograph for sky can only be found within composite characters in the extant Indus inscriptions. However, a similar symbol for sky does exist as a stand alone character in Naxi Dongba¹.
