Hello Anny and SW Listers -
The one to the left is correct (see attached)...It uses the General  
Arrowhead, which means that the two hands are contacting each other  
and moving along the same path...they became a unit, when they  
contacted and moved together.

If they were NOT contacting each other and were separated, then they  
would paint two separate paths...a dark one for the right, and a  
light one for the arrows paint movement-paths...and in this  
case, the path is united into a general arrow..
