What is ‘行走'?

Xing-Zou (行走)means 'walking’.   Why?  

The left part of 行 is 'double standing men' which looks like two persons on the left of the road (path); The right part of 行 is 'two-丁' since 丁 means 'strong young man' and '二' is 'two'! ----------So the whole character shows you a picture of the traffic: Four men are walking in opposite direction on the road! -------- Of course, the number may be more or less depending on your imagination!

走 has ‘earth (土)' as its head the lower part is your two legs and two feet, and one of the feet is going to overtake the other!  ---------When many people walk together on the path in the field,tiny earth (dusts)on the ground will rise and air will become so dusty that you have to hold breath!
