Examples (примеры):

  1. Ученые высказали предположение, что неразборчивые изображения на скалах – это не просто каракули, а фрагмент незаконченного рисунка, например карта или изображение глаз человека.
    Scientists have come up with an assumption that the rough images on the rocks are not just scribbles but a fragment of an incomplete picture, for example a map or the image of a human eye.
  2. Подобно линиям на ладонях, каракули, которые мы неосознанно рисуем во время разговора, отражают мысли, чувства и даже жизненные позиции.
    Like the lines on our palms, the doodles we draw unconsciously while talking reflect our thoughts, feelings and even attitudes.
