21. Part Horse's Mane on Both Sides
(l) Shift the weight to the left leg, and turn the upper part of the body to the left. Continue to wave the palms like clouds to the left and turn them over as if holding a ball in front of the body. Raise the right foot lightly at the same time. Look at the left palm. (Fig.129)
(2) Turn the upper body slightly to the right and move the right foot one step forward to the right to form the right bow step (about 30 centimeters between the feet). Move the hands separately, the right upward to eye level and palm oblique up, and the left downward by the left hip, palm down and fingers forward. Look at the right palm. (Fig.l30)
(3) Sit back and turn the upper body to the right with the toes of the right foot outward. Turn down the right arm and turn up the left arm as if holding a ball in front of the chest. At the same time, move the left foot to the inner side of the right foot. Look at the right palm. (Figs.3l-l32)
(4) Turn the upper body to the left and move the left foot one step forward to the left to form the left bow step (about 30 centimeters between the feet). Move the hands separately, the left upward to eye level with palm oblique up, and the right downward by the right hip with fingers forward. Look at the left palm. (Fig. 133)
Points for attention: When separating the hands in the holding a ball posture, the movements should be move extended, with the forearms slight1y and oblique outward and the waist turned with a greater amplitude than the warding off movement. So the feet should be spread farther apart. In executing the bow step, separation of the hands should be more coordinated with the bending of the legs. Extend the heel outward while straightening the rear leg with an angle of 45-60 degrees between the feet. Similar movements should also be executed in this way.
