3.    Parenthesis on both sides of the Signing Hands indicates a Circle around Deaf Culture, which is a small world, small communities.  The members of these communities know each-other, protected, surrounded, have direct connection and are all interlinked. 

4.    Two different of Hand Colors signify diverse Cultures, and are equal across different ages, backgrounds, etc.
