I cherish the image of the standing figure holding the bag.
When you hold a bag in your hand, the distance from your hand (handle or string) to the bag is short or the balance is attractive. You can often see them pulling the string of a drawstring and holding it close to their hand, or wrapping the handle of a tote bag around their hand. The closer the center of gravity of the bag is to the center of gravity of the body, the easier it is to maintain physical balance.
I'm always looking for what (other than a bag) is beautiful to carry around and what can be a bag.
