Subject:  Re: curved movement - forward and down

Hi Charles,

its fun to see how difficult it is and always has been before to discuss a
sign / movement -sequence in another language than SW.
If you could add a gif - it would be easier to discuss your point of view.

Im not sure . Perhaps I misunderstood your description. What Im looking
for is a forward down movement -arrow . Beginning position in DGS claws -
endpositon closed fists .

Im afraid that your writing (darkened circle with gap - indicating
parallel to the floor) wouldnt be accepted as closed fist.

I think it has to be the dark square with the gap. The wolf catches the poor
animal and is going to kill it - very forcefully -

Thank you very much for your attention!

What do you think about spider Jim ??
