<DIV>I'm looking at the multiple 01-07s, and I'm not sure I find the "noiva" handshape from Libras. Is 01-07-03 or 01-07-08 the ring finger being held up by the thumb at the middle joint (displaying an engagement ring). We had to create this in Libras while I was in Brazil, and I was hoping it was in the IMWA.</DIV>
