This black-line drawing of this glyphic element cuicui ("to gather") has been carved from the personal name glyph, Xochicuicuic (see below). The act of gathering involves a hand holding two flowers. Small vertical lines in the air surrounding this suggest repeated action, movement, and a visual reduplication.
