When she finishes painting, a thumb nail with black nail polish is used and serves as a screen. Communication with the waiting body to give birth is through the actions done by the fingers, and through the touch of those fingers would know the coming of the end of waiting. In the video shown inside the thumb’s nail there are three actions of hands and fingers that correspond with the prenatal moments - the opening moments.
