The Scarab


The first four movements are the same as the first four movements of the "Well." The strings in the centre of the figure cross so as to form a large X.


Fifth: Bend each thumb away from you into the former thumb loop (now hanging from the top straight string of the figure), and pick up, with the back of the thumb from the palmar side, the lower leg of the X, and pull it toward you through the hanging thumb loop.


Sixth: The same as the Ninth movement of the "Crab."


Seventh and Eighth: The same as the Second and Third movements of the "Fence" (Fig. 861).
