The eye character, 目, mù, is found in many other characters, to give various meanings. Let’s first see how it arrived at its current spelling. On the pictures below, we can see that some old spellings resembled the eye.
目 is found in 眉，méi， which means eyebrow. Some early spellings took up the eye with a few “hairs” above before giving the final character used today. 眉 is therefore composed of these two parts.
The expression “having eyebrows, 有眉目” means: beginning to take shape, to materialize.
