  • Sequence of movement

    With a slightly bent index finger, draw a pan on the upper back between the shoulder blades of the person being addressed. To do this, first draw a circle and then, moving down to the right, draw the handle of the socket. This is represented by - starting from the circle - briefly drawing the thumb and the tip of the index finger parallel downwards to the right and finally bringing the fingertips together. In a further sign one indicates the movement of the ladle swinging. For this you form your hand into a slightly bent flatland. The back of the hand is now placed in the previously drawn circle and several small scooping movements are made by moving the hand minimally upwards, then releasing it from the back and placing it back down slightly below. This movement is repeated once or twice.
