Day 46 - Paper, Rock, Scissors??
Jonathan Prewitt smiles with a Victory sign for his family and friends back home.
The hand sign indicating victory, solidarity, or approval, is formed by holding the raised index and middle fingers in the shape of a V while the remaining fingers are clenched. Generally considered a "Victory" sign, it can also carry connotations of "Peace" and "Defiance".
In the UK, if the hand is held out, palm towards the person performing the gesture, this is sometimes considered to be highly insulting, similar in severity to the "one-fingered salute."
In Asia, the gesture is often used by persons posing in photographs, with no necessary particular meaning.
