The first time my teacher told me the name of this move, I probably blushed a little. I can be a prude when around teachers, bosses, relatives and the like. It’s the Asian in me.
But after some thought, (and knowing the more polite name for this pose), I thought it was a lovely association. Figureheads are truly majestic sculptures. And you should feel that way when you’re in it. 🙂
