This file is part of Commons:Hanzi Universalization, (COM:HU) an experimental project for the artistic creation of innovative and universal forms of ideographic characters based largely on Chinese.

Other projects dealing with other aspects of Chinese characters include the Stroke order, Ancient scripts, and Kangxi radicals projects.
