Ancient Hebrew Pictographs Came From Everyday Nomadic Objects

Ancient Hebrew pictographs (picture-letters) were formulated from and named after real-life everyday objects that surrounded the ancient Hebrew nomadic people.

Below is a line drawing (by Jane E Lythgoe) of what an ancient Hebrew community may have looked like—called "Ancient Hebrew Land". It includes the 22 letters of the Ancient Hebrew alphabet—and can also be used as a children's colouring-in activity.

Note: The letter named TSaD [incorrectly known as tsade] needs to be changed in this picture. TSaD is a picture of a bird's-eye view of a pathway and destination—not a picture of a man lying on his side (next to the fire) (as per Jeff A Benner's findings).
