Pictogram problem.

I have recently been discovering Magikimnaz by translating a Khangaþyagon
text into Magikimnaz. I am now working on the Early Imperial pictographic
script, the original form of Magikimnaz writing, from which the Yimegan
alphabet eventually evolved. I'm having the usual problem of coming up with
pictograms for abstract concepts. I solved "envy" by combining the
pictogram for "eye" or "see", two lines taken from the frowning face
pictogram for "displeasure", and the pictogram for "man" on a higher level
than the eye, to indicate "to look with displeasure on one higher than
oneself". However, I'm really stuck with "tamit-", meaning "to believe
falsely, unfoundedly or insincerely." Any suggestions?
