Deaf Culture and tidbits
Deaf/Sign Language Art
An ASL speaker would easily identify this signed word as RIGHT/CORRECT in ASL. It's a cross-cultural interpretation. The truth is that this watercolor painting is based on the Deaf Nepali child signing "TEACHER" in Nepali Sign Language at a school for the deaf in Nepal. Unlike RIGHT in ASL where the contact is the palm of both hands, the contact for TEACHER in Nepali SL is at the wrist line.
