  • Sequence of movement

    The hand forms a C-hand, so all fingers are slightly bent. The fingertips are now placed lightly against the upper arm of the person being addressed, just below the shoulder. The hand looks as if it were holding a glass. Now pull the hand down in a straight motion to about the middle of the upper arm. A tilting movement of the wrist in the direction of the arm of the person being addressed symbolizes drinking, i.e. pouring water into the mouth.
