Throughout history, one of the oldest games people have played entails the use of hands to manipulate string on and around fingers, in an attempt to create figures. It was believed that these string figures were an instrument in foretelling the future and that the forecast is often determined by who is pulling the strings. As you approach the pair of hands joined together by the string figure of storm clouds looming, the intention is to consider what the clouds hanging over one's head refer to and to bring awareness to states of existence, especially to those characterized by hardship and suffering.
