I'm looking very carefully at the Video, and with Lucyna and me looking at how the sign is doing it, and you writing the sign, the hands would physically move up and down, independent of the body, and instead they have one end tied to the chest.  She had put the contact point at the pinky, the contact point is at the thumb.  It's like the ASL sign for Animal with the pinkies rotating. 

I think we need some combination here.

Hello SignWriting List!
I hope you all had a good weekend. I enjoyed having a little rest 
from answering email ;-)))

But I am happy to be back too.

And thank you for this excellent video Lucyna.

This sign for ANIOL in Polish Sign Language does NOT use Wrist 
Circles. In the video, the circles are from the whole arm...the wrist 
joint is not doing the circle.

A Wrist Circle symbol is only used when the arm never moves, and only 
the Hand moves, from the Wrist joint. So you need Arm-Circle 
symbols...Here is how I would write it. No need for contact stars, 
since I see no actual touching in the video. I will post information 
about Circle symbols next message...

Notice in my writing, that the arrowheads in the circle are placed at 
the exact spot where the hands start to move in the circle...The 
arrowheads are always placed where the circle begins....see attached
