The hand gesture that went along with the phrase was something like removing a monocle
. The left thumb
are held together, making a loop. This is put up to the left eye
, with the tip of the thumb and forefinger against the nose
. If it is done correctly, it is possible to see through the loop of the thumb and forefinger. Then move the hand down in a dismissive
motion, until it is at the level of the waist
and the arm is almost straight. It should be slightly to the left of the body
It's really hard to describe such a simple motion.
says: "The hand gesture forms a "6" which is interesting". It's interesting, of course, since the main character of The Prisoner
is number 6. Well, he's not a number, he's a free man...
