1. Hand Cycle
The image of 4 hands holding each other at the wrist in a circle illustrates perfectly the strength of teamwork. It also conveys ideas such as equality and balance.

Raised hands have different meanings and you can use them for the purpose you like: calling for attention, asking questions, asking for the right to speak, taking an oath, etc. The five hands raised, with their different colors, can also evoke the concepts of diversity, tolerance, justice and the right to speak up!

Moreover, the higher the hand, the bigger the tree, so you can illustrate 3 ideas in a hierarchical organization too.
6. Hand Tree
In this original graphic, the trunk of a tree is replaced by a human forearm and hand. The 5 wide spread-out fingers represent the 5 branches on which 5 leaves grow. This image is a visual metaphor that shows the harmony between man and nature, the protection and care of each other. You can therefore use this infographic to illustrate 5 ideas or concepts linked to a central idea, especially on topics like environment, nature, ecology, and community.
