miqui (Verg6r)

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the element miqui (to die) has been taken from the compound personal name glyph, Temic (see below). It shows a skull looking slightly toward the viewer's left. Some shading appears on the right side of the skull, adding three-dimensionality. This may reflect European artistic influence.
