This is another example of con:raposed fingers moving in three contrary' directions. The thumb and ring fingers in opposition to each other (see broken arrows) compress in tight contact, the ring finger underneath and bent into the palm, the thumb on top. Cast shadows, overlapping, and varying tones all help to illustrate depth. The two fingers extended outward and right and the little finger bent tautly inward and left express a diametrical cross-palm overlap. The extreme divergence excites the eye with its tension. Yet also note the recession of knuckles in a much less tense visual sequence.
