three (สาม) – wrists bending

Khon (โขน) dance focuses on particular  movements of several parts of the body from head to feet.

The hands’ movement though is the heart of Khon (โขน) dancing movements starting from how the fingers curve and how the wrists bend.  In every hand gesture, the dancer must bend his wrists at all time – the wrists may be bended backward, or upward.  One cannot perform any main dancing movement without bending the wrists.
