DGS: ring the bell
ring the bell (DGS)
Ringing the bell at the entrance of a house / building.
I rang the bell at the doctor's.
Sequence of Movement
The flat hand is placed on the right shoulder blade of the person addressed and raised several times by short twisting movements in the wrist in such a way that the edge of the hand always remains on the back while the rest of the palm is released. This movement symbolizes a door that opens and closes. In a second movement, performed on the upper arm, one shows the sign for pause. Here, the addressing person shapes their hand as if they were holding the clapper of a small bell. The hand is now placed on the upper arm of the person addressed and moved to the right and left (imitating a bell movement).
