Hi Tini and list,

thank you for your question - yes I agree it helps to know where to perform

special rotation symbol - but you don ±²  need any - ;-)   because you can see
the handorientation at the startposition - back of hands outside and in the
end back of hand towards  the signer - thumbs inside -

  Hello Stefan and list,

show the hands, at the end, "top view", while all is done in the same area
and without a sign of a twist in the wrists?
