Oohhhmmmm

Here's a picture to remember . As I've written before, there are only two characters pronounced shen2: and . Therefore, there are only two pictures of Sherlock Holmes (sh-) entering the Forbidden City (-en2).

There's a new character component appearing for the first time: . This character component is supposed to mean "cult", but because it has no definite pronunciation (at least I cannot enter it with my Pinyin system), it doesn't get its own (featured) picture. I'll represent it by a monk's cowl in other pictures.
