The confident pose of the model shows his arms outstretched with his palms open in a poetic manner, revealing the characteristic palm crease found in both hands of individuals with the condition. The model sat cross-legged revealing the flexibility of the ligaments most individuals with this condition share. The implied movement of George's mouth shows him enunciating speech. George has mild verbal apraxia, which some individuals with the condition have, and their speech is sometimes difficult to understand. However the artist has learnt that time spent with George, enables him to understand his speech more. That said; the pose expresses George's self-confidence in social situations.
