In music we have been learning about Hasthas, which are traditional Indian hand gestures. They are linked to the telling of traditional stories, such as the story of Rama and Sita. We have been using hand shapes when listening to Indian music to show lots of different animals.
Can you guess which animals our hands are showing?
The tortoise - Kurma hastha
The Tiger - Viyakraha hastha
The Bird - Garuda hastha
The Elephant - Mukula hastha & Hamsasya hastha
The deer - Simhamukha hastha
