Image Description: This hand gesture is one of holding or cupping an imaginary thing; many people see it as holding an apple that is not really there, though only the imagination limits what may be cupped in that outstretched hand! Humans have been making gestures while talking for probably their entire existence, and there are no reports of any community that does not gesture in order to enhance communication, a fact that is also true among many other animals, most notably primates. The same areas of the brain process sign language and speech, making it a symbiotic system that allows us to understand both gestures and spoken languages.
