Another Figure

New figure for gestural communication in dogs, elephants, and humans. I've wanted to use these images for years. Caption in progress; submissive dog shows antithesis to every element of the aggressive dog posture; male African elephants flap ears (top) and touch trunk to forehead in warning; detail from an 18th-Century French guide to painting showing postural language of different social classes, including 'proper' way to hold items (lower left). As usual, printed here in white on black, which is what I prefer.

Some monstrously complex issues to wrestle through tonight but I have two years of notes--actually, twenty--guiding me.
