The king comes to rescue

You can see further down the page that serves as a component to many characters, and I will represent it by Martin Luther King. Do you see the flute over the dirt? + = . Oh there's a point I should mention: These are graphical decompositions, not etymological ones. I'll just decompose the characters as it seems to best resemble the character itself. Also, + nicely fits the stroke order used to write , as opposed to, let's say, + which would otherwise be a totally legit decomposition.
