Looking at the picture, monuments or formal portraits, you will notice that there are only a few spectacular hand positions. But only crossed arms pose to interest us. Not too lazy to try it, you will find that there are two options. Your right hand rests so that its brush is hiding under his left forearm. Or vice versa: the right hand is on the left forearm and the left is hiding under the right arm. Direct symmetrical knot. Asymmetrical 'granny knot' Imagine that it is not the hand, and shoelaces. They can also be perehlestnut left to right or right to left.
