Square is also a circle

Recently I have noticed that 豆 is quite interesting for its unique appearance. In Chinese 豆 means ‘bean’. Why? Its inside oblong represents a round seed? Then what for the two strokes below? Yes, you may take them as semi-bowl holding the seed! The three-stroke under 口  is half of the pod. When you divide a one-seed peanut into two parts, you can see what had wrapped the grain. The crust exactly looks like the remaining components of 豆 (without the middle one 口).   If you prolong the top and bottom horizon lines of 豆, then you get a long green-bean with enough seeds as you wish!  In general, 豆 seems like a simple bean. Or you may think it as one part of a ripe greenbean.
