l004-1

 

The modern version ( l004-2 ) is a powerful graphic impression of the forearm - a symbol of physical strength. Moral strength, however, is more to be desired. And those who go by the rule : "Might is right" will soon have to learn that "Right is might".

In the original form ( l004-3 ) the long middle line (l004-4 ), curved at the top to take less room, represents the sinew that binds muscle to bone. The other line ( l004-5 ) pictures the fibrous sheath of the sinew.
