Trigram for trigram Middle son, Abysmal water

The middle son in the I Ching trigram family is the symbol of The Abysmal Water.

According to Wilhelm:

The Abysmal means water. It is the trigram of due north, the trigram of toil, to which all creatures are subject. . . He toils in the sign of the Abysmal.  … The Abysmal acts in the pig.  … of the domestic animals the pig is the one that lives in mud and water.
