thank you for your answer.
I´m not sure whether I can interpret your spelling
I tried to indicate with two arrows that both hands rotate first counter
clockwise while the right hand moves up - the left moves down at the same
moment. As I learned from you - we read the signs starting from the center -
therefore I avoided to combine both arrows to one.
Nevertheless looking at your writing - what does indicate that both hand
rotate always in the same direction while moving up and down alternating?
Thank you !
