Today I realised that:
象 means "elephant" which is the biggest land-dwelling animal,
亻+ 象 = 像 means "statue" which is the biggest person (I mean, a statue is the biggest representation of a human in the world),
木 + 象 = 橡 means "oak" which is the biggest tree.
Are there more of this 象 pattern? I'm sure these are not a coincidence.
