Subject: Re: curved movement - forward and down
it´s 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.
I´m not sure . Perhaps I misunderstood your description. What I´m looking
for is a forward down movement -arrow . Beginning position in DGS claws -
endpositon closed fists .

I´m afraid that your writing (darkened circle with gap - indicating
parallel to the floor) wouldn´t 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 ??
