I'm happy to upload a new frog banner image that my friend Jonas Lundberg at JLPhoto.se kindly has made for me. Thanks Jonas! Cool frog smiley

I think much simpler to just reverse the picture. The way it is is not without meaning. + btw - it does not matter if a person is left handed, - I think it might matter perhaps if a persons body is reversed, - some people have their inner organs in the opposite side to the normal way, - the left in the right and the right in the left - but it is very rare.

(- “The way it is”, - above, - I mean the Mudra - not the picture)

Hello Ran! Yes, you are correct. Traditionally. But sometimes I hear that the dominant hand should be below, so maybe the frog is left handed? However, I think the frog is like me, and he takes some of those directives more lightly. Form is important and helpful to me, but I also like to be flexible and free. Perhaps the frog's reverse mudra can be seen as an expression of such a balance? Or he is just being a punk trying to provoke us! smiley

I just noticed, the Mudra is reversed. The left hand should be in. The right hand below.
