American Sign Language:  "famous"




The sign "famous" is very similar to the sign "success" but there are some  important differences. The orientation of the hands is palm back. The movement is two arcs. The arcs in "famous" start low move high and then move low (as if drawing an m in the air).   There is no movement in the wrist.  The movement is mostly in the elbows.
