American Sign Language: "important"

In the sign for "important" your hands start in front of your belly and arc up and out to the sides then come together in front of your chest:


The handshape is a sideways (palm-in) "F"-hand


Animation:  IMPORTANT

The sign for "important" can also mean "worthy."

If you omit the first part of the sign (the big arcing movement) and just do the very last part of the sign (where the "F" hands come together) using a double movement this sign can mean "worth" (as in "the cost of or value of something."
